That's bizarre, around here micro brews are sprouting left and right. And they are truly micro breweries; I know people who quit there job to open some of them up. Of course, California micro breweries focus mostly on extremely bitter IPAs. But.. there are so many choices that even if that is not your thing you should be able to find beers you like. If you are not finding micro-breweries around you then I Think you guys need to catch up with the rest of the country.
