    You see them smelling the beer in the glass and they are like "smells like dark fruits, raisins plums, figs. I smell that shit and I dont smell all what they describe. Beer snobs are weirdos.

    I just had a Sierra Nevada Tropical IPA and it clearly tastes 'tropical' yet there's assholes saying there's not much tropical going on. Whatever man. I get everyone's palate is different but you're trying to hard.

    We really need to start breathalyzing people before they start threads

    Does Molson Canadian count as snobbish? That's what's in my fridge right now

    I am a reformed beer snob. At one point I had $1,000 (which isn't much compared to some) worth of rare beers aging in a cellar. Then one day I decided that what I was doing was fucking stupid. Now I'm fine with whatever.

    There would be a total of 2 pages of threads in the Stern forum if that was a thing.

    I dont know how to get the rare beers unless I trade for them and I dont care enough about it to trade with people online that I dont know or trust.

    I adore Czech pilsner. That's just what I like.

    Some people and their coffee nut, passion fruit beers are just retarded

    My wife just got me a nice beer making set up for Xmas. I've brewed about 20gal of 3 different brews. A IPA, red ale and a pilsner. The IPA will be drinkable in a week. The red ale maybe 2-4 weeks. The pilsner is cold fermenting and will be cold aged so it will be a couple months before it's fully ready.

    Guess it's a millennial thing, I just drink beer. I don't need that heavy coffee triple bock sweet baby Jesus peanut butter flavor bullshit...

    I drink way too much beer to pay $16 for a freaking 4 pack.

    But then again, I'm a blue collar worker and a trump/Cruz supporter... So my beer "palate" must be based on white nationalism.

    Yeah. A lot of staking out liquor stores, lurking on message boards, social media research. It got a bit out of hand.

    Ballast Point and Lagunitas were bought out by the big boys. The beer snobs are going crazy. Its just going to keep continuing. Goose Island was sold to InBev so they buy Burbon County reluctantly.

    I'll take a Corona with a slice of lemon or lime any day.

    I don't know the exact rules but I don't think a Mexican beer would even qualify as a snobbish beer. Mexico is a blue collar country. There's nothing snobbish about it at all.

    Yeah but now we have beer aged in whiskey barrels. You get the best of both worlds.
