Attend more Beer Releases and attend at least one Beer Festival! Oh, and start some homebrewing as well!
Visit more farmhouse breweries (Ommegang and Hill Farmstead, been there and plan to go back. Oxbow and Haw River, never been and want to make it out there).
Make the most of wet hop season.
Just drink the good stuff I buy until waiting for "the right moment" (looking at you, Arthur & Anna).
Use my (small) growler more.
Brew more saisons.
Break 3500 reviews
Get into homebrewing, this year was getting into craft beer generally.
(1) Take 3+ homebrew competition ribbons
(2) Become proficient at cask conditioning my homebrew
(3) Help develop & brew experimental batches at the brewery I volunteer at
(4) Acquire Certified Cicerone Certificate
(5) Start working on a business plan for my future brewpub (5-10 years from now)
Spend more time making my regular trading partners happy and less time trying to sift through the now totally ridiculous composition of traders in the ISO:FT forum.
Find a job in the beer industry.
Certified Cicerone (maybe).
Cross-country beer events.
Slay more whales.
I'm going to try to drink less. This is in direct conflict with my other goal of starting to home brew. First world problems for the win...
Another 500 ticks
advance a first round NHC entry to the finals.
Get a pot and a wort chiller and finally start to homebrew.
Finish trying the all the beers in regular lineups from some of the craft beer mainstays.
I've never had Alaskan Oatmeal Stout, Full Sail Pale Ale, there's a few from Great Divide, and a couple of North Coast beers, etc... Finding fresh examples of these beers has been the limiting factor, but I'll try to pay more attention to finding them fresh so I can give them a try.
Start homebrewing. I have the equipment but i just keep putting it for whatever reason
Every beer festival I can attend, starting with Hunahpu in March and launch a merchandising line for Craft Beer lovers.
To make sure that I look into recent threads before starting my own in order to avoid posting the same thing twice (insert winky face)
1. Start homebrewing - I have a pretty big kit that I won from a Smithwick's contest on facebbok, just can't find the time
2. Attend some brewfests.
3. Visit more breweries
Get and share a bottle of Alpine Great with my best friend Paul. I drank the only one I ever had by myself, and have been unable to get another for 2 years now to make it up to him.
Drink only WALZBRO.
But for srs, attend a beer festival, drive up to VT to get some Heady Topper, get more mates to share beer with, and shoot for 1000 reviews by the end of 2013.
Oh yeah, and start beer trading.
I would love to get into home-brewing this coming year!
Probably the same as last year...
support local breweries/brewpubs
100/100 beers of fame. i'm around 64 at last count.
Visit every brewery in Mi east and south of Grand Rapids. Take another west coast beer trip (in planning). Start home brewing again. Get a girlfriend. She can like or not like beer. Just need one.
Probably just try and land a couple solid brews from overseas moreso than here in the U.S. Would like to get trading partners in 3 different countries. Would be awesome.
I would like to do this. Not necessarily in 2013, but it's something I want to do. Unfortunately, I don't work in the industry, or have anyone who does to vouch for me, so I think it'll be a bit challenging.
Beer trade more! Message me for stuff from the Midwest (Central IL). Dont forget DESTIHL is going into bottling in 2013 and I live close
Find a craft beer that I like so much, I will only drink that for the entire year. No experimentation.
I will preface this by saying that I am getting married next year, so I already know I wont be doing as much as I would like. My goals for next year:
-Review every Cantillon and Drie Fonteinen I havent reviewed yet while in Belgium, Sweden, and Finland on my honeymoon
-Rent out space in a wine cellar and convert my current mixed cellar to nothing but lambic
-Get my fiance into craft beer more
Edit: also, low five yeahnatenelson more
Drink more of my cellar down to something more manageable. Work out more to compensate my extra craft beer drinking!! Home brew more!
Attend more release parties/festivals.
To consume more rapidly than I acquire.
No beer left behind.
rein in my spending.
Only 1000 behind you. Guess 2014 will be me drunk a lot saying I have to catch drabmuh!
stop spending so much on beer and have good value 4/6 packs at home all the time instead. also fuck wf pricing
emptying the "cellared" beer storage area for good.
Three words. Get. Moar. Whalez.
Well thank you kind sir. Great idea. Only can drink beer if I work out before hand!
