Of Beer and Checkers

From the memorable quotes department:

One day, several years ago, John and I were discussing beer.  Here in Seattle, there are almost as many micro-breweries as there are coffee shops (they go hand in hand, right?), and John had really taken to studying and enjoying the different varieties.

At one point, he took a drink and said, “You know, Rob.  Being a beer connoisseur is sorta like ... being a grandmaster of checkers.”

It’s one of my favorite quotes - observant, eloquent, and witty.  It came to me last night as we were discussing beer at a wine tasting.
