I’m being just a touch misleading with the title but I’m told that’s what brings the readers in: lies.
Or was that votes? I am running for dictator…
Nevermind. The point is: someone wrote a very helpful guide for sending a craft ale back that has gone bad. It’s pretty well done, with a helpful chart at the bottom that explains what may have gone wrong with the ale given what you’re tasting, as well as a disclaimer that people try the beer and talk to the staff/brewer to see if certain flavors were the intent. Strange flavors can be the goal and sometimes these thing just won’t be your idea of a good time but that’s different than a beer that’s old or been stored or served improperly.
Knowledge is power in these kinds of situations; now go and use your power wisely.
