Craft Brewing Is Something White People Like

At least here in the states, NPR reports.

“Craft brewing is rooted in home-brewing,” Marshall says. “And if you look at home-brewing, you see nerdy white guys playing Dungeons and Dragons and living in their mom’s basement, and I know this because I was and am one of them.”

Craft brewing and home brewing is part of the larger artisanal food movement trend (greek yogurt, vineyards, expensive coffee) which as a whole is largely made up of the kinds of white people who are proud of the beers they drink and list them off like they’re accomplishments.1
