As you might expect, this means he doesn't go out of his way to find good beer when he's in a given city. "You know, I haven't made the effort to walk down the street 10 blocks to the microbrewery where they're making some fucking Mumford and Sons IPA," he said.
Bourdain says a bar is a place to "get a little bit buzzed, and pleasantly derange the senses, and have a good time, and interact with other people, or make bad decisions, or feel bad about your life." When he recently went to a brewpub in San Francisco, he was annoyed with "people sitting there with five small glasses in front of them, filled with different beers, taking notes." It struck him as not a real bar. "This is fucking Invasion of the Body Snatchers," he said. "This is wrong. This is not what a bar is about." Apparently, the man does not want to "sit there fucking analyzing beer."
