Evolution of the Beer Geek

I first saw the "Evolution of the Beer Geek" image by Beer & Whiskey Brothers on Hop Talk and I wanted to pass it along.  It has a lot of detail and its humor is intellectual, as well as based solidly in many of the experiences we beer drinkers have encountered in the past.  However, the last two rows in the image made me pause and think.  The primary difference between the "Beerdouchicus" and the "Geeko Sapien" is the way they use their knowledge of beer.  Unfortunately, there are many examples of beer geeks who use their knowledge to prove their worth and browbeat others into submission.  As the image says, this often turns people away from craft beer, something that none of us should desire to happen.

Well done, Beer & Whiskey Brothers.  The image was funny, enjoyable, and informative, all at the same time.
