Thread: Overrated things: Beer festivals.

  1. #1

    Overrated things: Beer festivals.

    Drinking warm beer out of plastic cups - usually while while standing up and surrounded by the sort of people (let's face it: men) who attend beer festivals. You end up drinking several beers you don't like rather than just sticking with one you do (as you would in a pub) and paying an entry fee for the privilege.

    Balls to that.

    You'll be complaining about 'bald white men' next. When you've finished complaining about women being allowed in pubs, of course.

    But yes, you are otherwise correct. A bit like 'tasting' menus in poncey restaurants but for a different demographic imo.

    Yes. Loads of beer you've never heard of. Which you then try and discover that you haven't heard of it because hardly anyone drinks it because it's sh1t.

    Also - street food. When are people going to realise that good food is produced by people who know good ingredients and how to cook them properly. A hut or a van in the middle of an open area rarely provides either of these things.

    Street food is - at best - above average.

    Curmudgeons intent on sucking the joy out of every single thing. Vastly overrated.

    You would hate a beer festival. HATE IT. Far more than me.

    over the top hamburgers.
    in trendy hipster restaurants.

    Just because it's overly huge and has a variety of ingredients it doesn't need doesn't make it good.

    Street food is fine apart from the requirement to eat it in the street, which largely ruins the experience (and very probably one's shirt). I had a very tasty roti canai and curry from a Malaysian van thingy recently, but there was nowhere to sit, so I ended up having to work out how to eat this sloppy mess while standing around. I ended up binning half of it in frustration.
