Pumpkin, citrus, honey or maple and other stuff just don't belong in beer.

Just one mans opinion!
Microbreweries turn out a LOT of good beer using just water, yeast, malts, and hops. By and large, the difference between microbrews and mass-produced beer is the selection of ingredients and attention to quality. It's like the difference between the burgers I cooked on the grill this afternoon and cheeseburgers from McDonald's.

You don't have to be a fan of fruity, flavored beers to appreciate a good microbrew. I don't care for flavored beers, either, but I appreciate good food and drink made with real ingredients.
