- I personally think RateBeer is a great website, I've used it as a resource a number of times, in order to get an objective measure of the quality of certain beers. I'll be honest though, I normally always, if I'm curious, try a beer for myself before forming an opinion...
- My perception is
BarTowelers are more interested in trying new beers merely for the sake of adding it to RateBeer than they are in drinking and enjoying a beer for no other reason than that.
I didn't mean to offend!, the point I'm trying to make is that if
someone falls into this category than I could see that they wouldn't understand or appreciate blending beers, because despite how good, or interesting, or enjoyable the result was, since it couldn't be reviewed on ratebeer, what would the point be???
If, on the other hand, someone is thinking, what would a hoppier version of Newcastle Brown Ale taste like, they could mix in a few ounces of a DFH 120 Minute IPA and voila!!! Frankenstein is born! Mwoohahaha! Jeez, I might just try that you know!
Bottom line, different strokes for different folks, let's focus on our similarities, not our differences, we all love good beer, let's continue to give one another new ideas and new ways to explore this most fascinating bevvy!
