Using corn cheapens the product? Think again!

I just read this great little article on beer history in America, over at

The article contends that, due to the beer shortage on the Mayflower, the Plymouth settlers had to adapt their brewing recipes to use indigenous ingredients, which (most certainly) corn was one of.

Just be certain that, before you go snubbing your nose at a beer because corn was used as an adjunct, you give every beer a fair shake, as the use of corn is very much a part of American history.
