"Baby, what's the matter? Is there something wrong with your beer?"
(Sigh.) "No...it's fine. It just could be, I dunno...gayer, I guess."
A colleague guided us to a Time article about Minerva, a small brewery in Jalisco, Mexico brewing artisan honey-ales that "will appeal to gay men and lesbians whose refined tastes have been put on the back burner by beer manufacturers."
Well - that was news to us. We were operating under the wacky assumption that gay men, lesbians, bisexuals and transgendered people were physiologically identical to straight people and that taste has pretty much zip to do with sexual or gender orientation, but clearly we were wrong. Wrongwrongwrongwrongwrong. Because this is in the news.
Seriously - we are all for gay-owned, gay-positive advertising messaging for all manner of products, but that notion that there is a collective gay palate is just totally goofypants to us.
