Because Method's primary stylesheet imports Bootstrap's source SASS files at the top of the file, you gain the added advantage of having access to all of Bootstrap's SASS variables and mixins. While this is great, having access to the variables will most likely have limited utility without being able to customize them to fit your project's needs. Luckily, this can be accomplished without having to touch any of the actual source files.
