Beer is declining in popularity and a close association with it does the folk scene no good at all.

The numbers who drink and care about decent beer aren't huge, but neither are the numbers who play and care about traditional music. I think it'll be a long time before the folk scene's grown to a level where the association with beer is what's holding it back.
