My biggest regret, and it still bothers me, was attending the San Diego Belgian beer fest at Port Brewing about 5/6 years ago and passing over RR Beatification for too many Orvals then deciding to get one and find the last one got poured to the guy just ahead of me in line.

Regret not telling my wife that the bottle of Dave in the back of the fridge was not to be used for marinating chicken.


Seriously?!?

Ouch...


No, not seriously. I saw a bunch of other fictitious humorous remarks and thought what the heck. The only brew my wife canít keep her hands off is NG Raspberry Tart.

Mine is not letting my brother order a second case of Beatificatrion for me after I had ordered my case (limit was 6 each of B001 and B001 PH1) and then trading so many away!

36 years of drinking crappy adjunct beer before I had Bells Two Hearted and realized that I should drink beer that wasnít advertised on TV.

I think my biggest regret is drinking two Unibroue Ephemere (unflavoured) about 6 months before I joined Ratebeer and never seeing it since.

Moving to North Dakota. A beer wasteland, but it is slowly improving.

My regret was my noobie experience. I looked at the top 50 and went out and purchased alot of impy stouts and IPA only to find out they are my least fave styles.

I will probably regret rating the beers that i have had. I know iíve had a couple hundred beers in the past year but i havenít kept track of all of them. Lets hope my memory holds up.
