exclusion well-heeled

Learn and appreciate fundamentals of beer whether its craft or not, and go deep in some content like taste, aroma, ingredients, glass, kegs etc. The authors is quite critic about some craft beer that is diverted from what beer supposed to be. After listening, I am more conscious, more analytic about the content of beer i drink. Story is fun. Voice reading by the author himself is clear and filled with authentic passion.
