Our beer rating system is designed to offer a straightforward and intuitive way to evaluate and compare different beers. Using familiar quantities like pints and kegs, helps you quickly understand how much you’d enjoy each beer in various contexts, from solo sipping to big celebrations. Here’s how it works:

Not Worth a Sip
It is not enjoyable, and I would not drink it again

A Not Worth a Sip rating indicates a beer that is not enjoyable and is something you wouldn’t drink again. This rating is reserved for beers that lack appeal in taste, aroma, or overall experience, making it one you’d prefer to avoid in the future.

Good for a single drink

A Pint rating indicates that the beer is enjoyable enough for a single serving. It’s the kind of beer you might try once, perhaps at a tasting or to complement a specific meal. While it might not be your first choice for stocking up, it’s certainly worth a taste to appreciate its unique qualities.

Good for sharing with a small group

A Pitcher rating suggests the beer is a great choice for sharing with friends. It’s perfect for casual get-togethers where you want to enjoy a few rounds and have some fun. This rating reflects a beer that offers enough character and appeal to be enjoyed by a small group over a relaxed, enjoyable session.

Good for a casual gatheringA Six-Pack rating signifies that the beer is well-suited for a casual gathering. Whether it’s a barbecue, a game night, or just hanging out with friends, this beer is versatile and consistently enjoyable. It’s the kind of brew you can rely on for regular enjoyment, providing a satisfying experience each time.

Good for a party or extended enjoyment

A Case rating is reserved for beers that you’d happily keep on hand for parties or extended enjoyment. These beers are crowd-pleasers that cater to a variety of tastes, making them ideal for larger gatherings and celebrations. With a Case rating, you’re assured of a beer that will not only impress your guests but also offer extended pleasure over multiple occasions.

Exceptional, a must-have for any occasion

A Keg rating denotes a beer of exceptional quality and universal appeal. It’s the ultimate choice for any occasion, from weddings to major events, where you want to provide something truly special. A beer with a Keg rating is a standout that everyone will remember, making it a must-have for the most memorable experiences.
