Regarding "Beer For The Masses":

Shortly after I began brewing, I bartered a case of a special batch of beer
to a friend. I asked him what type of beer he liked and he replied,
"Whatever's on sale." ;-( I made a variation on one of Papazian'z Light
American Beer recipes from TCJOH. It was too mundane for my tastes, but he
loved it. Later, when we bargained again, he said he'd be willing to drink
anything I made for him. As tempting as it was to make a heavy stout, I made
a mild Brown Ale. The idea was to give him something dark without being too
heavy. This went over real well. I figure that I can train him to stout in
a couple of years ;-)

I have several friends who are used to drinking swill, but most are willing
to try my beers. Unless I make a stout or porter, which I don't think that
they'd like, I get a reasonable amount of appreciation. The beers that have
gone over the best with this crowd are my Wiezen and a recent batch of a
honey lager. Both of these are drinkable (the Wiezen is great) but not too
extreme for people with pedestrian taste.

Fortunately, I do have friends who appreciate real beer, so I'm not
constrained to making milder brews.
