The website hasn't seem much updating in the past month, and it's just because I have been constantly battling various minor moments of ill, which have just put me in a blah mood most days. I still have a fridge that is half full with Caitlin and I's Chicago/St. Louis Adventure, but when I've been at home, I just haven't felt like drinking. Sadly, about half of those beers are ones that we are going to share - so I can't just drink them when I am home alone.
In my few trips out on the town, I really haven't gone anywhere with stellar new options for me. My standard locations have their same offerings, and I just haven't come across anything anywhere else that demanded I try it.
So, just taking a little bit of time to try and get my body and mind back to feeling better, and then I plan to start ramping up the beers this Fall/Winter. My goal will be to hit 900 before the New Year, and then hit the 1,000 Goal sometime in 2017.
Things are still up in the air for my plans after 1,000.
I do love beer. I love beer a lot.
Part of my time recently has been spent working on the finances to be able to afford to buy shares of BrewDog USA and become an Equity Punk. That's still in the works, but might take longer than I had hoped for.
As I get closer to the "finish line" I set up for this website, I keep having an massive war in my mind...
Stop drinking beers at 1,000, holding tight to the "Journey to 1,000 Beers" tagline?
Keep drinking beers, but not recording them onto this website? Just let this stop at 1,000 and feel like drinking is less of a "job" for me.
Keep drinking beer, and continue this record until I get tired of it?
Keep drinking beer, keep writing about beer, and keep trying to expand this website with more travel and perhaps invest more time for better written content?
It's a battle that really doesn't have a front-runner right now.
I'm sure Caitlin and I will talk about the options more in the future, as I get closer to 1,000.
We have a lot going on in 2017, especially with our wedding - so this website will probably be taking the back seat to that for a portion of next year.
That's looking pretty far into the future.
We've got 146 beers to worry about before the time comes to make that decision.
(I'm on par for 150 beers a year for the last two years, so it's a safe bet that we will be crossing that milestone before the wedding)
So, there's a quick update.
I'm still around. I'm still drinking. I just haven't been making the effort to add anything new recently. I will try to start changing that sooner than later. Thanks for reading!
