What is really so bad about dating a #beernerd? - via +First We Feast 
I got married two weeks ago. Hold your applause. Yes, I know it’s a remarkable achievement for a beer geek—who would want to marry one of us? We’re despicable. In fact, any time one of my single beer-geek friends starts…

"There is only one Budweiser" WTF?! What abour "Budweiser Budvar Brewery", making Budweiser BEFORE AB decided to use the name in USA. Get your facts straight and realize that insulting beer drinkers will NEVER be a good thing for your brand.

They think we're all idiots. And that's why it's so rage inducing. That there will be that one guy sipping his bud, nodding in agreement.

I feel really bad when I have to give someone a bad rating for their beer. I never realized that judging beers would mean that I would be telling people that they brew bad beer. Stupid me, yes.

Hopefully my comments will help them brew better beer.

I am happy to report back that the brewer seemed to not take my rating as an insult. I still have 3 more beers of his to rate. He asked me to remove the bad ratings from the RateBeer site so that he has time to address the issue. I gladly obliged.

I guess I will know if he took my advise to heart if I do see his beers with better balance. I will also know if he appreciated the feedback if I ever get samples from him again! :)

Story
Tagline
I am a coder/brewer and I love Tanja, beer and music (mostly metal and rock).
Introduction
I am a happily married programmer who lives with my wife, Tanja, our ball of insanity (cat), Mischief and a quickly growing devourer of food (dog), Shadow.

Apart from coding I brew beer, play games on either the PC or the XBOX, board games, card games, poi...

I read a lot and I listen to loads of music.

I am also really bad at writing about myself.

Amazing food! The ten courses were each an experience in their own right. I tasted things that I had only seen on TV. The service was perfect and friendly. Dario and Alex, the chefs, explained each meal and were happy to explain certain foods in "small words" so that I understood. They made our anniversary dinner a memory that will last forever.

A stunning variety beer! From micro-breweries all over SA, as well as a large collection of imported beer.

A quaint market with fresh fruits, vegetables and meat. Random craft items are available, from paintings to post, from artisan cheeses to dog beds! The small pub in the one corner serves local craft beer and serves as a homebrew supply store as well. The food was good and the company friendly.

Friendly service and great prices. Johan and Milan were really helpful and ensured that I chose the correct product for what I wanted. A convenient "we have everything that you need" for LP gas! They have loads of other products as well. A great place for a homebrewer to get equipment and items to build other equipment.
