If you like your craft beer, have you been to the Homebrew festival?

Wish the ones near me stocked all three of the brewdogs would of picked up a few hop fiction and some jack hammer to try

Brewdog 'craft' image doesn't really fit with the stainless steel factory next to the council rubbish/recycling site.

'Craft' is just a marketing term. The reality is that it doesn't mean anything. If you want locally produced ales that are only available in small quantities, you're best buying direct and paying a premium. Anything that is sold through the major grocery retailers isn't going to satisfy that requirement. Personally, if it tastes good, I don't care what it's called or where it's from!

Your ASDA is far better than mine. The Stafford one is appalling for decent ales. I think it has only two of those you've mentioned.

Not been there that long and I suspect they are clearing them out - Asda Lancaster doesn't have any of them.

Craft for me is about flavour, not size/ location of brewery.

A craft brewery or microbrewery is totally different from Brewdog. Have a look. Put Balmacassie Drive, Ellon into Google maps and see for yourself.

I know good beer - most of what I drink is from microbreweries and I have a world class one (Hawkshead) on my doorstep.

But most Brewdog tastes just as good, so I drink it too and stock up when it's cheap - don't give a toss where it's made.

Drinking what you like's fine. Selling an industrial brewery as craft isn't.
From the Brewdog website
"MARTIN AND I (JAMES) WERE BORED OF THE INDUSTRIALLY BREWED LAGERS AND STUFFY ALES THAT DOMINATED THE UK BEER MARKET."
(Then the bit they don't say)
But we saw there was a lot of money in it so we decided to do the same.
