German craft brewer's opinions on Franconian beer scene

Hold it right there!  Whose post was sanctimonius?  Hope it wasn't mine, I just tried to give my honest opinion!

I compared the Orca chap with some of the brewers of beer that I had over the last few days because it seemed to me that they have traits in common - very new, maybe experimental.  I've embraced a lot of different beers since I ventured out of my comfort zone into Franken, the Oberpfalz and now Prague.  All these places brew completely differently to my old-fashioned English taste.  It took me some time to get used to them but, when I've had a good, well-made beer, I've said it.

One of the things that I think we like about Franken is the tradition but it's not just tradition for its own sake, it's because, by and large, the brewers have perfected their craft over a long period.  Ok, some of them have started trying out new things but they still brew the old, successful stuff, as well.  

I appreciate that many of my beer friends (like those of last weekend) are of a different generation and often want to try something new but the Green Duck, for example, had nothing but 'new generation' beers, none of which I liked or even thought were that good (it didn't stop me enjoying the time with friends, though).

Sanctimonious means 'holier than thou' - I hate to think that I adopt that attituide, I just know what I like - sorry!  

P.s.  And I did end by saying that it's all in IMHO!
