OK ladies and gents, I rarely post anything to this site. Furthermore, I would hardly consider myself an expert. However, I love beer!.... Seriously! So much so, I googled websites on information about beer and came upon Beer Advocate. The rest is history. I constantly reviewed all of the forums, challenged my pallet as much as possible, and even rated a few beers. My question to you all is what keeps you coming back? For me, I've never received as much information, opinions, or expertise about beer before joining the club. Furthermore, I envy the beer selections in some areas, and loath the self-righteousness of others in some of the conversations we've had. I feel we are a select group, and probably even have smaller cliques within our organization that gather in secret for unofficial tastings (Yeah you!) ..... Anyway, what is your reason for maintaining your loyalty to the club?
