Todd Alstrom did WHAT!?!!

Seems only fitting that we're coming up on the first anniversary of my ban from Beer Advocate and another outrageous thing has happened. I'll let the pictures tell the story:





There are just so many things to say about this incident. I mean, seriously, where do you begin? In fact, I won't even bother going on a rant because if you're reading this then there's a 99.99% chance that you're having the same reaction to it as I am (well, maybe you don't dislike these people as much as I do).

What I'd really love to hear is someone DEFEND this guy, what he said and worse - his actions! You know me, I'm a libertarian, so I'm not saying let's boycott someone for what they said, but rather what they did. And, by and large, what someone says doesn't really shock me all that much anymore. It's what they do and there's plenty of actions that are repulsive here.

Here's my call for a boycott from just about a year ago:

  1. Way to take things out of context ... the negativity you create does so much harm but what do you care? You are a professional beer blogger throwing the hammer down like a big man and all.

    1. You're right, calling one of the biggest names in the beer industry (unfortunately) on their bullshit is stupid. We need more idiots like this speaking for us, eh?

    2. You have also been banned from beergeeknation. If you get banned from a nice guy like Chris, you are clearly looking to get black balled from the community. You are an angry smart ass when no respect from anyone but yourself.

  2. Wow Chad you are so awesome ... this was so worth you while, you must have a ton of time on your hands. So when are you going to make out with Todd and relive all of that pent up tension?

  6. Chad, you have been banned from pretty much every beer site out there from what I have heard ... love the passion! Keep on hatin' if that is your thing. I am sure Todd loves the attention you are giving him.

  7. Publicizing someone's insensitive comment about a person being towed should not reflect on his professional stature. In any consumer based industry and or community there are a few people with snobby or smart ass tendencies running the show. BA has its pros and cons just like any other beer rating website. If you choose to not use it for personal reasons you should keep it to yourself, or if you so choose between yourself and other like minded individuals. Cheers!

  8. Todd Alstrom is by far this biggest scumbag this country has ever produced. I never thought I could hate someone as much as I do him.
