    i just realized, must of been all the beer that i have been advocating, that at the end of January, it was my 10th anniversary as a member of the site. No big thing but like they say "Time flies when you are advocating beer"

    That was many moons ago... the quality and selection of beer in Nebraska has improved quite a bit since then.

    Very cool! I started drinking craft in 2003, and joined the site in 2005. For a while I even subscribed to the print magazine, and enjoyed reading reviews. I did not feel ready to write my own until 2011...

    Cheers! 2 1/2 years for me but as much time as I spend on here and all the changes the site has gone through it feels longer.

    Not to mention all the cool people I have met through BA. Almost everyone here is cool and I've been lucky to meet a good number in person.

    11 years this summer for me, but I think I was active on the site before then... my memory could be off but I thought we were posting in forums without usernames before then (it was a long, long time ago).

    3+ years for me. I wonder how many people who joined in early 2010 will still be around in 10 years.

    The best part about this is I hear it in Archie Bunker's voice.

    It's been 5 months for me. I need to start reviewing more beers!

    Friday was my 4-year BA anniversary, and I completely forgot. I'll have to open something special next year for the fifth.
