Thanks and…! You joined RB on my birthday!!

Man you guys are all old as shit! When you joined RB I was coming to the end of my first year in secondary school, aged 12.

Congrats though. It’s impressive enough that a website is still around after 17 years and still going relatively strongly, even more impressive it still has members who have stuck around that long.

Very interesting - just before you joined, there were 7365 beers in the Ratebeer database, Budweiser was the most rated beer at 93 rates, and Bov was the #1 rater at 1170 (followed by some guy with the username Oakes at 1088). And you joined two months before the new “featured” beer - Sierra Nevada Pale Ale (I wonder what ever happened to that beer?).
