The Ship of Theseus is an ancient thought experiment basically asking...Does a ship that has, over the course of several years, had every one of its components replaced remain essentially the same ship?...It is a question that men have grappled over for centuries, but I'm gonna give you the answer right here...Ready?
No, fuck no!...It isn't!...Get over it now...Eesh!
This is what bothers me about beers like Stella or Kronenbourg or Sleeman, they all try to dig up and brandish their pseudo-histories like they're so tied to them even though the companies have changed names, owners, recipes and locations so many times that their founders would be hard-pressed to recognize them...It's not the same ship, idiots!..And I don't need you to convince me otherwise...I just need you to make me a decent Session Ale that's crisp and refreshing and just hoppy enough that it doesn't taste like I'm downing a glass full of pinecones...Thankfully, Sleeman's done just that...
