    Hi guys, tonight I will attempt my 1000th beer rating tonight but I want to know if the beer I picked was a good one. I got Cockeyed Cooper - Uinta Brewing Company. Good pick?

    You've had 999. Whatever you choose for your 4 digit count is the correct choice.

    Hard to go wrong with a Barleywine.

    I just ticked my 1000th the other day, and here were what I perceived to be my options:

    1) Drink something really special. Well, I didn't have anything really special. I don't drink Whalezbro.

    2) Drink something really crappy. Rolling Rock came to mind for some reason.

    3) Just drink anything. There's no real significance to 1000 vice 999 or 1001. It's a human pattern-seeking thing.

    I ended up going with something outside of my state's distro (Alesmith), with both a style (Wheat Wine) and a name (Decadence) that seemed appropriate to the occasion.

    ...

    So, if I have any words of wisdom to bestow, it's this: you can't go wrong. Whatever you choose is the correct choice. Something special, rare, unique? Awesome. Just another run of the mill brew? Nothing wrong with that, either.

    Congratulations on 1,000. I see you're at 987 right now. Are you reviewing 12 other beers tonight as well?

    Not tonight, I will be rating and then reviewing only my 1000th.

    So you've already done 999, or am I missing something?

    Basically, I'd say that if you've gotten up around that number, then any beer you choose would be appropriate provided you have a reason for picking it. Feel like reviewing a world class beer? If you have one, go for it. Feel like reviewing Corona Light? Then do that one, it would be good for a laugh later on. Just make sure there's a personal meaning behind it for you, don't just blindly reach into a mixed 6-pack and grab one at random.

    Salut!

    Not sure about him, but I have a long long list of detailed tasting notes for beers that I haven't rated or reviewed yet. I fell behind when you had to review and only recently came back when I saw that ratings only was now allowed. I have something like 800+ beers that I have left to rate. Personally, I don't like to rate more than 5 or 6 at a time while I am catching up. I've got a very good taste memory, and remembering more than that many in one sitting gives me a bit of a headache. I just wish the buzz would come along with it.

    I'm sorry, I don't care how many beers you have reviewed. You gave Corona Extra the same rating (4) as you did Uinta Hop Nosh, Allagash Curieux, and Dogfish Head 90 Min IPA. You gave Budweiser the same rating (3.75) as Founder's Backwoods Bastard & Green Flash West Coast IPA. Don't understand your rating scale.

    Not yet. I'm at 988. Working my way to 1000. 12 beers in a night is normal for a friend and me.

    I rate beers compared to their corresponding style.

    As they should be. A 3.75 barleywine isn't the same as a 3.75 IPA.

    These are just small tastes. There is enough beer there to get the look, smell, taste, and feel. That is all.

    lol thanks. I am working on it. Going to take about 2 hours.

    Rather than something special, go with something completely on the opposite end if you can...Bud Light, Miller Lite, Milwaukee's Best...

    I don't go in to the brewery until 12:30pm tomorrow so I have time. Also, I don't go to sleep until 3~4~5 in the morning.

    You should do a blindfold rating. Have your friend pick the beer for you, but you'll have no idea what it is. Then blindfolded you'll have to rate and review it.

    The only non barrel aged black beer I've given a perfect 5 score to. Not even a huge Porter fan to boot.

    Indeed. Yuengling isn't even bottom 10. Minhas, now that would make the list.
