treated seriously by the majority of those who determine awards and
recognition. They view drinking as fun, but the act of brewing seems to
fall in the realm of not so artsy and not so sciencey... A great number of
people seem to treat it as a secondary skill. (Hmmmm, that's actually
somewhat period in some situations especially for women...) and tend to
blow it off. Plus with the added problem of less wet sites... that also is
