Default BeerAdvocate Ignorance Vent. LOL

I am a big fan of the BA site. I go there for beer knowledge and too review brews as well as shoot the breeze on the forums. Anyhow lately I've been running into a lot of sarcastic arrogant idiots on there, who in all fairness do know what they are talking about, they just tend to be like I said arrogant. 99% of the people on the site are decent. Just had to vent as I guess this seperates the beer geeks from the beer snobs. If I ever turn into a snob someone please shoot me.

Are you talking about the ones who get all pissed off when a question had been asked previously and their answer is "look it up"?

I don't spend too much time there anymore. I got tired of thread getting locked or deleted because the bros don't approve. But hey, it's their site so they can do what they want. I'll just go elsewhere.

I still frequent them for event posting or beer reviews.

for the most part, I agree. Their homebrew forum is ok. But the beer tasting stuff is nuts. Rating a beer high just because its rare doesn't mean its good...

My buddy owns a very small brewpub. If you walk in there with a note pad, he lets you drink your beer then asks you to leave. he can't stand the BA people.

It took me less than a week to leave that site and join this one. I'm not one for snobs.

My recent problem is. I made a post about a girl asking me in my local bottle shop if these were all ales or beers. Little did I know some people don't consider ales beer. I wasn't talking down on the girl I just thought it was funny. I basically got called stupid, condescending, lame etc. Kind of annoying when all I was trying to do was have a sense of humor.

Did you at least educate the girl in the bottle shop? There was a time I didn't know the difference between ales and lager, but that was like 1984.

Well, that's pretty f*cking stupid. Why does he care if someone wants to write notes to themselves? How does he even know if they're writing notes about the beer?

All beer. Different fermentation processes. This guy was from England and apparently they over there beer and ales are two different things. Sorry if im not up on my british customs.

That's what I was going to say... seems like a very quick way to lose customers.
