I had a similar scenario...I rated a beer with a poor rating (not that awful really...low 3s i think) and a representative from the brewery contacted me and demand to know where I had the beer because it sounded as if it was out of date. He then called the bar I got it from (one of my "home" bars where they all know me) and complained that they were serving old beer. Turned out the beer was not out of date but it created an awkward situation between brewery, bar, and myself. I was mildly pissed that he went out of his way to point out my rating to the bar.

2. Tired Hands: first review I did of a Tired Hands beer was very low key, it was a HopHands growler that was fresh. My review wasnít that it was bad, just not blown away. Jean contacted me and asked nicely that I re-rate the beer fresh at the brewery. I was a little shocked and miffed, but then after having it that way I can see his point. He is very serious about his beer and wasnít happy about some of the first reviews ever of his product coming from a less than ideal non CP filled growler. Now, Jean and I have got to chat on numerous occasions and he even donated 6 growlers for RBWG


I hope those 6 growlers for RBWG were at least CP filled! If not... ::facepalm::

Try calling things garbage or reference giant piles of garbage in your reviews.

One guy wrote to say that his beers did not under any circumstances contain diacetyl, after four of us had all noticed that special distinct buttery flavor.

*not counting the times the guy from CASTA beermailed me to thank me for rating. SALUD!


The Fullsteam guys are really cool.
