Welcome Sarah... Say, take a minute and fill in some of the BIO section..
I think you will find this forum very friendly and laid back.. Well, after the 'Break-in' period that is.. But then, none of us here can really agree on just how long that may take, or, if it really applies ??? But hey, that's what makes this forum so interesting..
Just remember to take most of us with a grain of salt, a grin on your mug, and a pint of your favorite brew close by.. (On second thought, better make that two pints!)
PS: If you are not sure what you should be drinking, there is a thread here devoted to the best beers to be had :-)
LFE ! The rest is just details..
