Mine would definitely be wax sealed bottles with no clip to open the cap.
Easy. No bottle dating.
Breweries that make massive quantities of crap and only a few barrels of the stuff heaven must be made of.
I don't know if it's the "biggest" pet peeve of mine, but I'm bummed by the lack of fresh imported lagers.
Sticky, residue laden bottles.
Selling beer on eBay and people hoarding vast amounts of hard-to-get bottles.
ya know what I hate more than no bottle/can dates???
Indecipherable dating codes that involve me using some other website, or a stupid Mickey Mouse decoder ring or something to understand them...
It's as if they are trying to mock me or something. ..
Selling beer labels that no longer have the same beer inside. Leveraging the logo to sell whatever is in the bottle.
I'm not talking about just changing the beer, I'm talking about buying the brewery, shutting it down, and moving to the U.S.A. and trying to clone the same thing... It's just not the same, it just isn't.
My biggest pet peeve is buying a $12 bomber just because it "looked cool'. I'm a sap for special releases
Hey, if you tossed out your Mickey Mouse decoder ring, that's on you, man
The positive in this is that it has incentivized me to learn how to read Julian dates.
It's actually more of a bummer that some will pass them when they are fresh.
There was only one in the cereal box and I ain't buying any Crackerjacks either. ...
Waxing is kinda dumb
Not sure if this is what you mean but beer stores with no prices on the bottles or shelves. No price = no purchase for me.
That my local Trillium is turning me into an alcoholic w those 25oz bottles of 8% DIPAs that just taste so f'n good. Also --- humble brags like me...
You're not missing much by not decoding the messages- they usually just try to get you to buy more Ovaltine.
"Ice cold" craft beer.
"Casual dining" restaurants (Applebee's, Red Lobster, etc.) that carry only Sam Adams seasonal... Hey corporate assholes... let your franchisees choose their own taps!
No bottling dates and too cold beer are a good start.
Thin stouts and porters
What if the franchisees choose to carry only macro lagers and Samuel Adam's seasonals?
getting fucked up and accidentally drink rare/valuable beers that you should enjoy while less intoxicated.
Hmm... good point! However, I believe that in my neck of the woods I'd see a lot more Southern Tier, Great Lakes, and a few other local/regional options.
Overpriced IPA's and IIPA's. Dear brewer's, there are many more very good to great IPA's for me to purchase. Please keep this in mind when you decide to charge me over $11.00 for a six pack. I've got about 15 differerent choices to pick from. CHEERS!
Bottling dates should be mandatory. Or Brewers should care enough to make it an industry standard.
Wouldn't you love to sit down and have a chat with some of those guy's that come up with the impossible codes?
Breweries that off 20 different beers but they are all average or below. And the other end, breweries that makes great beer but only have 4 of their 8 beers on draft at a time.
Which explains why can't some brewers bother to write something on the bottle that 99.9% of the public can easily figure out... so why can't you..?
Happy frigging New year. ..!
Or fresh well made American Lagers for that matter. Although SN Nooner Pils and Summerfest are both super tasty.
Most (certainly not all!) bourbon barrel aged funk.
- Putting an OK beer in a barrel doesn't make it 5/5. Stop trying to justify overpriced junk.
- Should be in big bold print on the bottle in plain format. 01/01/2015
Overly aggressive "sales specialists" quoting rankings from Beeradvocate.
- In the grand scheme of things, I do not base a purchase from a ranking.
Hype associated with this beer or that.
- It happens and its annoying. Can't really stop it though. But seriously, it's a beer, not a cure for cancer.
People saying a beer sucks.
- Taste and feel are relative. Would prefer if people said "That beer just wasn't for me. You try it and see what you think"
Any non conventional capping method. Metal cap yes. Cork maybe. Wax? Not buying it. Sorry.
- If you need something other than the taste of your beer and word of mouth to sell your product, your beer might not be as great as you thought.
No 32oz or 1 litter growler option at a brewery.
No bottle dates and putting fruit in beer
I will bite. A disclaimer though. Taste is relative. What I like or dislike is not going to be the same for you. That being said.
the fact that my brain wont let me open the bottles in my stash...its not like im cellaring them, theyre being kept in 60+ degree temps in a cardboard box......
I'm going to go out on a limb and say that Lazhal was referencing AB InBev.
