The old thread had been around for 5 years, and was getting unwieldy so we're kicking off a brand new online beer tasting - Idea Submission Thread. This thread is where the BA community can come to offer suggestions and input in determining the next online tasting. More recently, these online tastings have been happening roughly every 6-8 weeks here on Beer Advocate (in 2020 we had 7 online tastings throughout the year). The theme or topic of the tasting can be a single beer, a single style, a subset of similar styles, or a particular theme. In recent memory we have had tastings that fit into all of those various parameters. Its a great opportunity for people to hopefully explore beers they may not have been otherwise inclined to explore, to learn more about these beers, to review these beers on BA, and most of all, to have fun and interact with other BAs. Although we've tried a couple ways to pick the tasting topics, the current method is just general discussion until a general consensus is reached. So jump in here, offer suggestions, offer thoughts and input, and be part of choosing the next topic. And if your suggestion is not picked? Don't worry, there is always the next tasting. Once a tasting topic is chosen, a weekend will be chosen (again, by general consensus) and then a host will set up a separate tasting thread for the specific tasting.
