There you have it: Winemakers today are acting like brewers.
I mean that in the best possible way. The small-craft-beer industry is amazing right now. Craft beer has evolved from the hop wars of the last decade into an explosion of styles and expressions, largely thanks to garagistes and virtual tinkerers like Mikkeller. You don’t need to devise a beer for the ages. Devise one for next month.
No surprise that wine executives are quietly nervous about craft beer. And wine types, take note of how Big Beer has elbowed its way into the craft world.
