I like to try different beers, whether or not theyíre rated highly. A beerís name doesnít affect how Iíll rate it, but it does help decide whether or not Iíll buy it in the first place. I personally prefer all types of wheat beer. Dunkelweizens have recently earned my greatest respect, and I hope to try a lot more of them. I donít have a tolerance for hops like a lot of hopheads I know.
I used to be the kind of person that kept bad beer companies in business, until I was enlightened to the merits of well made beer. Thank God.
