The Future of good German bier in the US

Most American small breweries (like most small businesses) are very undercapitalized and I think that is one reason there are so few lager breweries. You can turn out far more ale with the same brewery. But I do think the fad of ultra bitter beers will subside. Most homebrewers go thru the same phases -- they brew bigger and bigger and more over the top beers, but many of them come back to the more subtle styles. Our brewclub has seen a big increase of people brewing Milds, Ordinary Bitters, etc. and I think the commercial world will follow. I know I went thru the same phases where I wouldn't hardly drink lagers at all. And my wine friends tell me that the same thing is going on there. The more delicate whites are making a comeback. So there is hope! (More later, gotta run)
