NEW BEER RULE #8: Always take beer more seriously than yourself.
This needs little explanation.
But to be clear, this is a beer rule. Not a life or work rule. The alternative version goes like this: Ask yourself if it’s the beer you are taking too seriously or yourself.
The rule popped into my mind not long after I hurriedly posted my Thursday morning musing, so here are those links again and one to a discussion that followed.
– Over Analysis Syndrome (from brewer Matt Van Wyk)
– Armchair Brewer Syndrome (from brewvana)
– Drinking the same beer way too long (from The Beer Mapping Project)
– Rating Beer Raters? (Rate Beer discussion – Matt must still be amazed what he wandered into)
You connect the dots.
