The Case Against Cocktails in Mason Jars: John Kessler, a food blogger for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, has a bone to pick with bar owners (and probably hipsters) all over. At the beginning of the month he took to his various social media channels, proclaiming that “If I never get a drink served in a mason jar in 2013, it will be a good year.” He writes about his desire to see the jar craze fade out in a recent blog post, reporting that while quite a few of his followers agreed with him, many did not, including a chef who called him “grumpy.” What do you readers think, should the heavy jars be phased out, or should we all continue to raise a glass to the mighty Mason?
