Moderate beer. Medium body, with a honey flavor. Not bad, but not something I would go out of my way to drink again. Decent spring/summer beer. Just okay.

This is a total departure from the heavy Rye-Aged-Rye Miller and I have been drinking.
Fruity-tootie! This beer is easy and simple, and so good to drink. Literally like drinking a fruit cocktail. Light, refreshing, and great quality. I could drink a lot of these.
New Milestone: 900!
I have been holding onto this beer for a few weeks, wanting to make sure that 900 was from Revolution. (1000 will also be from Revolution, I already have it (them) aging in my fridge...)
Everything about this beer is good. The aroma from opening the bottle gives you exactly what you are about to drink. The rye smell is strong, and the rye flavor is very strong in the beer. It's a good sip, it's a solid flavor - and it's a single flavor. From the drink to the swallow, it's one consistent flavor all around. It's really enjoyable, and very tasty.
A very nice and sour beer, it tastes really good while I'm drinking it - then something with the hoppy-bitterness kicks in and just makes for an awkward aftertaste. Still a very enjoyable beer overall.
For people who love coffee, this would be a really good beer. It goes down quick, easy, and it super smooth - then the coffee flavors slowly builds up in the aftertaste. Very good quality, I just don't really like coffee.

I came across this random beer in a fridge a local liquor store. I had never heard of it, and thought it sounded interesting enough. A 10% Ale from a new brewery - let's buy it!
It turned out to be a decent beer. Nothing great, it goes down smooth and easy. It's has an awkward lingering aftertaste. Not a bad taste, and it most likely just from the high gravity - but it's just a little off. It doesn't make me want to stop drinking it. I'm going to let it warm up a bit
and see if it changes anything.
After sitting a while and warming up, it makes the weird aftertaste go away almost altogether. It's very smooth, and not bad. Nothing special, though.

Dry. Dry. Dry.
Probably my least favorite Hefeweizen ever.
Oh man. I was intrigued by Rogue doing a Hefe - but no. Sadly, no. Very light up front, but dry, mouth-like-the-desert-dry afterwards. Sad face. Going to be tough to drink this one.

Decent red ale, almost a hint of sour. There is a small bit of sour while I am drinking it, but it goes away quickly and the beer has a very dry finish. I enjoy the front, but not the back so much. Still not bad, and dryness doesn't make it a bad beer.

I started this website near the end of 2012. I registered the website in September and spent the last four months of the year getting everything caught up. Going through MySpace and Facebook posts looking for beers I had posted. Going through my iCloud and other Hard Drive back ups, trying to find all of the pictures I had taken over the years, to make sure I hadn't missed anything - and then I worked on the post for The First 152, based on the beers I knew I had drank, that I didn't have pictures of. Those first 152 are all pretty common beers, that I don't think anyone will ever challenge me on. A few of them, I have even done REVISITED posts just to confirm they have been drank.
2013 was the year I started keeping track hardcore - and it still remains my most successful year with 236 new beers drank.
I am coming up on 900.
Should be in the next week or two.
It will be from Revolution Brewing - one of my favorites. Also, Beer 1000 shall be the two variations of Batch 1000 from Revolution Brewing. 113 beers to go. There is no way that I won't hit my goal in 2017.
Then, I have to decide what the plan is for the website...
