Most micro brewers I’ve met are what Barry Crump would have called “damn good bastards”. They tend to beaver away in relative obscurity, producing beers that are far better than anything the big names turn out. They are almost always friendly sorts, happy to share their knowledge and time with you. They get precious little recognition for what they do, so it has been great to see Stephen Plowman and his Hallertau brewpub recognised in this nice little piece in the Herald today.
I love Stephen’s beers. If you haven’t tried them, get out there and have a taste. You’ll love them too. Trust me, would I put you crook? 😉
