Say this today while adding a few more beers to the database. Local brewpub that’s been around for a few years. Drop by every once in a while, but don’t search out their stuff, and am not a completist in getting everything.
After all of this time, I am still the only rater of the brewery’s beers. 27 without anyone else rating a single beer. Anyone else have places like this? What’s your highest count at an otherwise unknown brewery?
Sign of the state of things…
I’m the only rater of the nearest brewpub by me, but it’s only been open since Christmas. I’m also the only rater of a brewpub about 100 miles away, and I first went there in 2017.
Printworks, which is owned by some of the Sadlers family. Theyve setup in the Windsor Castle, it’s only 5 minutes from my house so I’ve been drinking there for years. The other is Brewhouse & Kitchen in Wilmslow. The wife’s nan doesnt live far, so we stop there when we visit.
I am the only person to have bought a beer from Breach Farm brewing in Hampshire. Have had 10, only I gave some of them to other people.
There it’s some 1’ers. Faultline from Surrey. I had one of the two beers they produced before they folded. Werewolf from London’s beer that was cuckoo brewed for Love Beer London. And two Surrey Cideries, Horse Kick and Heather Farm.
For me it’s only newer (like opened in the last 12-18 months that are like that), I can’t think of any that have been around 2+ years, but many breweries near me have maybe 2-4 people who have rated 1 beer.
For example, I’m the only rater of:
https://www.ratebeer.com/brewers/ashton-brewing-company-usa/43120/ and https://www.ratebeer.com/brewers/twin-lights-brewing/43264/
Both are fairly new. Many other breweries near me have a very small # of raters, but more than 1.
