A week from saturday (1/22/11) will be exactly a year since I wrote my first beer review on here. In that time I have reviewed 48 beers. Seven of them aren’t pictured because I reviewed them in Michigan and didn’t bring the empties home. I’m rather surprised at myself. I have tried blogging and journaling before only to forget/give up in a week or two. Although, there’s usually not tasty beer involved with journaling. Plus I feel more adventurous and like telling people about beers that they have not heard of. I really feel a sense of satisfaction when someone finds a new beer they love because of a recommendation or review that I have.
Looking back, it’s great to see all beers I have reviewed. A few of them I will probably not have again, but most of them are great if not amazing. A good selection of world class beer. I also went to my first beer tasting, which I organized. Hopefully there is another one in the near future.
For any of you who have been to my apartment, you know about the beer wall. There’s this opening between the living room and the bedroom where pocket doors used to be. On the top of the opening there’s this old looking crown molding that also works as a shelf. All the beers I reviewed I stuck up on this shelf and I always got compliments from first time visitors. We are moving tomorrow and the new place has no crown molding. We don’t have much closet space either, so the 2010 beer review collection will sadly have to be thrown away. Our building doesn’t even recycle (don’t know how that’s legal in San Francisco).
This isn’t the end of the beer reviews. More will come shortly. Thanks for reading. Cheers!
