The whole association between beer and folk music is a liabilty anyway. Younger people drink far less beer than people in their 50s and don't romanticize it. Why should they want to get involved in a musical scene that makes a religious issue of it? Does drinking Baileys or vodka and fruit juice make you less good as a singer or or fiddler?
