    I don't really spend time searching out beers anymore. I would rather try new beers that are easier to get versus wasting time chasing whales.

    I love chasing beer down, I also love how this site made me recognize a lot of beers i would have otherwise completely missed in the store. Even if it isn't the whitest of whales, finding beer i recognize or have been coveting makes me feel like a little girl in a candy store.

    For me beer tastes that much better when you really have to go looking for it.

    True, but it's also an incredible feeling when you stumble on something unexpectedly, kind of like the same feeling as getting cool extras in a trade when you weren't expecting any.
