I've never gotten past the beer reviews at BA. I usually disregard the rating they give, since they are mostly biased toward anything fancy, foreign or just plain impossible to come by.
This place is great.
I gotta agree. A LOT of the posters I've seen on BA are more snobby than anything else.
Of course, when your whole site panders to critics, you're gonna get those type of over-inflated douchebags mixed in with the nice people.
I frequent here for the same reason... fun and easy going. Yes, creepy and crude sometimes, but my kind of crude and creepy.
