My sister's boyfriend loves it. He's always taking pictures of his latest tester. I'm not social media inclined so stay away.
It's tricky, I like trying them, but a few pints is all I can do. They tend to be stronger, heavier, and hit you harder the morning after.
My true favourites are European pilsners, ones like you mention. They are refreshing yet strong tasting.
Another plus for all these new breweries is that they cater to families. 3 or 4 where I live offer kids games to keep them entertained whilst I have a cheeky pint or 2.
I was at a brewery in Montana last year, it was probably the best I've ever been to. They had a table tennis table, table football, numerous board games, a massive lawn, outdoor games. The only strange aspect was a state law that stipulated that as beer was brewed on premises each drinker could only have 3. They gave you 3 tokens as you walked in, and handed them over each time you went to the bar.
I'm also pretty sure that if I didn't frequent all these breweries I'd be posting about my fitness exploits in the health thread.
