This is very true. But, what's worth remembering is that, although this area is awash with beer, much of it really very good, the local 'knowledge base' when it comes to beer is very thin.

People are loyal to certain breweries, often through no other reason than they've been drinking it for decades. And they don't view beer as a speciality so much, because it's everywhere. It's not a million miles away from carling, fosters, Heineken, bud light etc drinkers around the world.  They typically stick to what they know - many people wouldn't know half of the breweries that members of this forum do. Even the regulars at some of the best places would say the same as those in some of the poorest ie this beers the best. It doesn't mean they're more discerning, that they've tried all the beers in the area and decided upon this one,  just that they happen to live near that brewery. 

That's not to say there aren't people who know their beer and visit different breweries. It's just not common.
