And those whose hearts are fixed on reality itself deserve the title of Philosophers. (Plato, 380BC)
Every new philosophy starts with a question. This one began when we asked home-brewers for a grand vision of a perfect beer that we would then brew into a reality. One aspiring alchemist theorized an ale with rich caramel, chocolate and cherry notes.
So we pondered this. Brewing batch after batch. We got the vision 98% right, but the final 2%, the cherry notes, still eluded us. So we asked ourselves another question: "What if the answer lay within another beer?" By adding 2% Kriek, we finally unlocked the secret to a new beer that has since started many a grand rumination.
So slow down and refine your thoughts. Ask the right questions, and let your bar stool become a throne. Drink, and therefore you are.
Everything for a reason.
