|I'm with Mads here -- and I think most of us are in some way. Would you still go to Spezial Keller, Roppelts Keller, etc if they served beer from Wagner Oberhaid (or beer of that quality)?|
In my mind, location, setting, friends and those things move the "enjoyment level" up a notch (or two). So a boring beer is fine in the right place or with the right people. An OK beer becomes great and a great beer becomes out of this world. But I don't think anything could make me enjoy a flawed beer.
And there is a bit different dynamic if you are a visitor touring rather than somebody living in the area. The visitor is (often) going to multiple places and there is less tolerance of flaws — “this beer is a diacetyl bomb, on to the next place.” And if you are in a group, that group is problem traveling with you where as a “local” you run into people you know and you may hang around a less than perfect beer because of them,
And BTW, I took the “4000 beer’ comment to be “I know German beers” rather than bragging... Cut non-native English speakers some slack...
