In 2016 I tried a lot more beer. According to my Untappd I tried 99 distinct beers throughout 2016. Now that may sound like a lot to some people, but when you consider the vast range of excellent craft beers out there it’s a miniscule proportion of what’s out there.
To that end I’ve made one sort-of new years resolution: drink more beer.
Not just more beer though, I want to taste more newer beers. As the new year rolled in, I had 294 distinct beers logged in my Untappd account.
In 2017, I’m aiming to taste 256 new beers to take my total up to 500.
As a start, I’ve signed up for a beer subscription service from the folks at Honest Brew. I got a deal that got me the first box – of six beers – for just £9. That’s only £1.50 per beer! After that it’s £29.90 for 12 beers per month – only £2.50 each!
You can grab the same deal by signing up here, if you’re so inclined.
Obviously beer costs money, so I’ve estimated about £3 per beer spread out over the year. In total, I’ll get 141 beers from my Honest Brew subscription (though there’s a chance I’ll have had some before) at about £2.40 each so I’m already over half way to my goal and under budget with that. Winning!
