Sure, this is the third time I've "retired" this blog, but I'm pretty sure this time's the final time. The craft beer revolution is over; we won. There's no need for underground "samizdat" any longer. I can go to a place like Estonia - as I did two weeks ago - and find amazing, locally-made, flavor-packed craft beers stacked next to aisles of Belgians. I can go to any town in the USA and buy a Westmalle Tripel or a Trappist Rochefort 8 or some locally-made double IPA. What use is my voice, the voice of a mere insect, in the cacophonous explosion of great beer?

Thanks for reading the past several years - it's been a blast.
