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.

Maybe he used real butter?

Happened to me on twitter with a brewer who I follow, tweeted bits of my review.


name and shame or BM me !?!


Iím curious as well. I once had a manager of a London bottle shop (The Beer Boutique) complaining on Twitter about my place review. He never actually got in touch with me, though, opting instead to just bitch on Twitter. I updated my place rating, revising downwards a good bit. A few months later I got a beer mail from a new manager at the shop apologizing for the previous guyís antics. Some people are so cavalier about what they post to Twitter that itís just obnoxious.

Iím not going into specifics here, but oddly Iíve gotten 6 or so place bitches over the last 10 years and only 3 beer rating beefs. The place rating beefs were professional. The beer rating beefs were not, and those bitching about beer ratings remain on the low end of the Bell curve.

. yeah happens once or twice a year. always nice things for the most part. most often that they just thought it was funny, but two occasions stand out.

once by a brewer.
was for the most part courteous and tried to point out facts i said in a review were wrong.
he is still making beers with unmentioned flaws but we swapped a couple of beermails and i like him more for the way he conducted himself.
his beers sell though so he doesnít care.

-was also once contacted by a beer store owner because i gave one of their collaborations a "low score" (3.3, 3.5 something like that) .. they even contacted an admin about it and bitched to them to take it down. To say this person was crazy was an understatement.
so i simply said their beer wasnít my cup of tea and wished them well and hoped they would leave me alone..

You mean like this?

Derek,

We take all complaints seriously. We investigated all our back inventory, accounts and customers and YOU are the only person who says our Duet had diacetyl.
Thanks for the review on BA and ďcalling us out. Ē Can you possible just forget we exist?
