Some guy mentioned Guinness as the "official" Emergent beer. I thought this was presumptuous until I realized it is as decent a choice as any, especially since it is not everywhere, takes a discerning taste bud, has a good back story and is universally respected, even though it is not in the league of the greatest brews in the world, it is probably the single greatest Beer in human history fit for mass consumption. I think the guy was complimenting Emergent with this choice.
As I thought through his choice I asked myself why someone would try to come up with an official beer, unless he was trying to tie a product to a movement to give outsiders a handle. I then started thinking of other "official" products of Emergent. I am working on that. However, I am also working on the "official" band of Emergent. I think I am almost there. But, I cannot share it yet.
It will not be who you think. If you have time, send me WHO you think I will choose (but not why, please).
