How DraughtClub.com rating system works
As regular beer drinkers, we decided that our rating system should be a simple system based on the "standard" six pack (think Moe's Tavern). This means its 0 through 6 for "I won't drink even one of these", to "I'll take a whole six pack", without any fractional portion of a rating. You don't buy a fraction of a beer do you? Oh, we also decided to add the "Keg" designation for those beers that we REALLY liked, so we actually have a scale of 0 to 7. We decided that the other rating systems based on 1 to 100, or 1 star to 5 stars (with what seem to be infinite fractions), don't really tell us regular drinkers what's good or not.
As part of our rating system, we list our Draught Board member's comments about why they've given a beer a certain rating. In this way, if you decide you identify with a Draught Board member's opinions (like they don't like sweet beers, or can't stand fruit in beer), you can track their specific ratings.
Does this mean many of our beers wind up rated in a "tie"? Of course, because when it comes down to it, lots of beers are really good, some are pretty good, and some aren't quite so good. So when you decide go out there and try some beers, you can easily pick those rated 5 and above or focus on a specific Draught Board member's ratings, because you identify with their taste. If you decide to join in our rating system, remember its going to be somewhere between zero beers (don't try this one again) to "get the keg" (this beer is really worth buying). NO FRACTIONS OF A BEER, OR A KEG, ALLOWED. Also, our website won't accept fractions.
