Yes, it’s a new rating!
Yes, because I might like it after all.
Maybe, in rare circumstances but not usually.

I am a little bit of all 3 of those. Voted 3. Usually no 2 or 3...3 covering 1.
Every once and a while I'll spend or buck or two on what I know will be swill. Still can be fun. Or in the instance of a few crappy "craft" brewers like Indian Wells...they are SO bad it can actually be funny. Not to mention the bad beers make one appreciate the good ones even more. I call it "resetting the bar." [:D]

I'm with you there. It just seems stupid to deliberately buy something that you won't like.





oh crap...I split an infinitive. Another lousy grammar rule.

When I was young and dumb, yes. I admit it. I'd buy a beer that that I knew I didn't like just to have a rate. Then rating became so non-important compared to the enjoyment of the beer, that I will not buy a brewer/style that I don't enjoy anymore because...well...why? I think the old quote about Insanity can be used here...lol.

I will buy them if they are cheap. I have had a few surprises over the years. That is what keeps me rating.

I enjoy beer too much to purposefully buy something less than desirable just to rate. I have had non-stellar beers unintentionally. Need to get caught up on ratings.... Several in my texts and notebook.

"How often should BeerPal do a new poll?"

- Once a month

- Once every other month

- Whenever someone gets a new idea or feels like adding one

- When the shit brown theme goes away

- Never. I love the old ones.
