I want just one of you, ONE OF YOU, to admit that Allagash White is not for everyone.
It is a niche style beer!!
Hello!? McFly!? Think, McFly, think.
Belgian Yeast and Wheat Beer in general, kinda fucking suck… well, suck to a lot of people anyway. Allagash White Fan always fails to mention this when complaining.
And then there is the disconnect of what the upper beer geek crust thinks Untappd is and what it actually is.
I mean really, how long is it going to take you Untappd haters to understand the app? It is not for rating a beer on how well it is made. Nope.
It is an app for rating how a beer tastes to a person. A human beer drinker. Not a brewer, or Beer Twitter, or Beer Instagram.
So when you understand the context, 3.76 is a very good rating for a shit style. Is there a Belgian Yeast inspired Wheat Beer ranking higher? I’m not going to take the time to figure it out but it’s HIGHLY doubtful.
I now present to you the most accurate Allagash White rating on Untappd:
Belgian Yeast is the Brussel Sprout of the beer world. Loved by some, disliked by most.
So Allagash White Dude should be happy with that rating. And maybe shut the hell up, for once.
Good evening fellow beer (and maybe blogging) enthusiast. I’m starting late tonight because of a busy day of being a dad, watching the ending to Spike Lee’s HBO Epicenters series on 9/11 (it’s good) and the fact that I only have three beers.
I knew I wasn’t going to be able to buy more beers today and I only had three left so I waited as long as I could so I could have a decent drinking session and maybe have a productive buzz.
Live Drinking Blog:
Mammoth Brewing’s “Yosemite Pale” is beer number one. A beer I am familiar with, nicely priced, and a little bit old-school but not in a bad way.
So, do I have this right: GABF (virtual) and Craft Brewers Conference (in person) happened roughly at the same time this year? … um ookay?…
10:18: New Beer Alert! 🚨 Wren House Brewing session IPA. Super stoked to have Phoenix’s Wren House in Fresno somehow:
Watching Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Chrystal Skull because that is what’s on at the moment (Showtime). It’s still a large disappointment but it also isn’t that terrible.
Another nice night in Fresno:
12:29: I’m back! I had a bit of a family emergency but everything is cool now. On to my 3rd and final beer:
1:33AM PST: What a rip. Never achieved a buzz. Just disappointment. Oh freaking well. Maybe next Saturday.
