Opinions are not facts.
Let’s start with this – I am a newbie, an amateur, a novice, you get the idea. Like you, I just have an opinion. Yes, I know opinions are like assholes, blah blah blah. If you are a sommelier, professional beer taster, whiskey master, etc. we probably need your guidance, so by all means, enlighten us. My mission is to learn something and drag you with me through the process. I’d like to add some value to this blog with occasional bits of wisdom and welcome your input because you probably know a lot more than I do. Let’s learn together, shall we?

It’s a good idea to sound like we know what we’re talking about when we walk into that beer, wine, or liquor establishment, because if you look like me when you’re walking out – weaving, stumbling, tripping – you will have questionable credibility. Be knowledgeable – exercise that gray matter to counteract the effects of your visit. If nothing else, you will now impress your friends by knowing what a quaffing [tee hee] wine is.

Exchange or express diverging or opposite views, typically in a heated or angry way
Remember, I’m not an expert so constructive feedback is always welcome. No one likes a rude drunk because it gives alcohol a bad reputation. Be humorous, be entertaining, and save the arguing for something more significant. Now that we know your intention is not to incite an attack, your brutal honesty IS welcome. For the thinner-skinned folks out there, if you find yourself offended by someone’s opinion here, that’s okay, go cry it out and come back to re-join the party, we still love you. M-kay pumpkin?

Be love, always!
