Listen Up Beer People. It’s About To Get Real…
By: Jay for www.theBreweryUSA.com
have a lot of shit to do today, so I am going to keep this fairly short and sweet. Being the naturally laid back person that I am, there are not that many things that get me too upset other than David Caruso (he knows what he did). However, when I was browsing the ever so glorious reviews section of Beer Advocate the other day, I read something that made me want to punch a kangaroo right in the testicles, which is not okay on many levels. Number 1, kangaroos are FUCKING AWESOME. They hop, they can stand on their tails, they speak Australian, they will literally kick the shit out of you, and they have a built in fanny pack. Number 2, it would be an extremely dangerous thing to do, hence the kick the shit out of you part. The thing that I read made me throw all of my kangaroo cares out the window and sent me into a rage ready for Marsupial battle. Let me lay out what was said for you:
Blah blah blah blah I didn’t care much for this brew blah blah blah it just struck me as very pedestrian.
ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME? IT STRUCK YOU AS “PEDESTRIAN?” I WOULD LIKE TO STRIKE YOU WITH MY CAR WHILE YOU ARE A PEDESTRIAN. IDIOT.
Yes, I know that the word “pedestrian” works correctly and makes sense in that sentence, but frankly it just makes you sound like a total asshole and it got me thinking…
Let me quickly explain why I am not a fan of the “craft beer snob.” I dislike drinking shitty, watery beer just as much as the next guy but you don’t have to be a douche about it. Being a craft beer drinker is not something that should be rubbed in the faces of the “big beer drinkers” but, something that should be talked about and shared with those people in hopes of shining a new light on their taste buds. You don’t drink craft beer because you want people to hate you and the way you present yourself when you order one at a bar…you drink it because you enjoy the taste, the effort, the thought and the creativity that goes into the making of the beer that you like. Those brewers actually give a shit about what you are putting in your mouth (giggity) and they care about what they make enough not to mass produce a shitty quality product and send it out to the herds. Next time you see someone drinking a Miller Lite or a Bud Light don’t laugh at them or be a douche, buy them something that YOU like and help guide them to the promised land. We all had to start somewhere right?
If you were offended by anything I said here…oh well. It’s just my opinion. I love you all.
