I never call myself anything. People call me things, I´ve been called a range of things (beer related) from beer connoisseur to drunken idiot I don´t care too much for labels.

Wait. You're not talking about beer, right?
You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.

I would call myself a beer geek, just like I call myself a gear geek (music stuff). I geek out over it because I have such a passion for it. BUT im also willing to try anything once, and Ill likely be drinking Coors Light tomorrow because i play in a country band and it comes with the territory. Again, like Anthony Bourdain says about chefs, you have to try every food once to really call yourself a chef.

But what if you stick the labels on with milk so they're easy to get off?

Yup but I don´t like the idea of walking with a drunken idiot sign glued with milk

Imo, I'll give anyone my brews. Although I have to say it is much more satisfying to broaden the horizons and open a new world to the light lager junkies of the world than give a "connoisseur" something to criticize. I think most people that critique beer dont have any context. Comparing craft brews to micro brews to macro brews to mass produced chain breweries.

knowing a beer's source determines the resources at hand and the quality you should expect.
