I just read via Beer Advocate that Ratebeer was bought by AbInbev!(?)!
Hmmmmmm.....Full disclosure, " a minority stake".
A brewer just trashed all their stuff on Rate Beer. Updated all their beer descriptions to Rick Astley lyrics.
This https://www.dogfish.com/blog/message-sam-current-ratebeer-changes offers a well thought opinion on concerns regarding the purchase. And it comes with something near and dear to my heart - a call to action.
And, while I'm not a gamificaiton fan, it's time for me to take this topic to "the next level" (which is easy since it's summer):
Who cares. Those beer rating sites are suspect anyway.
I had to stop and do a double take, let out a huge sigh of disgust - combined with the most dramatic eye roll ever - the first time I saw a Beer Advocate score next to a beer in the liquor store...
Yes did get a priv message from a brewer in holland. He did tell me about.it. as well dogfish brewing. Took there beers away from rate beer
Craziest thing... I don't need someone or a conglomeration tell me what I like and don't like... I can't help but think, if you drink brews because its on the hipster list, or won't because it aint... You already are a loser... Capital L Sneezles61
Dayum big guy

Dogfish Head cares. I care. And these "guys" ...
... appear to be, among other things, "data hungry".
Powering down my "internet" in 5, 4, 3, 2, ...
Let me rephrase that. I don't care
Here's my answer to all of this nonsense.
Buy extremely local. And know who you're buying from.
Two pretty good IPAs by the way!
Time to step away from the "the box"... RDWHAHB... or many if needed! Sneezles61
And then this comes along ...
It is - have a great summer everyone.
You think he actually did it
KNOCK, KNOCK... Hello ? Small batch? He left the light on.... I'll bet he sneaks a peak... He can't just bail out for the summer.... I hope.... Sneezles61
Now if he can only stop reading bogus beer reviews he can enjoy his summer vacation while the rest of us waste our time making dumb comments
Aw shucks... we just like to hear our selves digress... Sneezles61
