    This would be a terribly stupid idea!! What if I die before the end of the year? Also, what's with these "and...Go!" threads? Too much pressure!!

    I would never agree to only drinking one style per month and not be able to drink the style again until the next year. That's insanity lol. I do typically go on long streaks of trying many beers in a certain style, but when I get burnt out on them I drink a different style. Not being able to have a given style except on a specific month would be awful in my opinion.

    It's interesting to see people's responses though.

    Don't know how I could possibly go an entire year without partaking in an IPA.

    Some months would cost you about ten times what other months would
