So I'm curious. For so long there has been this culture of going out and getting smashed out of your brains with no regard for anyone, including yourself. This isn't aimed towards anyone in particular, especially anyone here. A friend of mine said, "craft ales are the other side of wine tasting." He said that it's more about the taste than it is getting smashed. This is a concept I can get behind.

What I want to know is, what do you guys think of this stigma that has been attached to drinking alcohol for so long? Granted, it may have changed in recent times, but what can we do to change it?
