I don’t really know that I truly live in the suburbs.
Geographically I am in the middle of the city. My neighborhood is 70 years old. Can that still be called “the suburbs”?
I had always thought of the suburbs as like, the small towns and track homes around the city as the real suburbs.
Well anyway, I live in a house that 60 years ago, was the edge of town. So … vintage suburbs then.
Which finally leads me to: Do we drink differently in the suburbs? Are beer trends the same as the core of the city? What about people out in the country?
Do I drink more living where I am at? Less? ANY difference than if I lived in a loft downtown?
A different part of the city might be closer to taprooms or breweries. Another has basic liquor stores. Out in the boonies you have a small country market.
That would have to make a difference, right?
I feel like I drink more grocery store beer than anybody in a different part of the city or countryside.
Are styles used differently? More Lagers out in the boonies? More Stouts in track homes?
Guess I’ll keep trying to figure this out.
