Visit at least 3 breweries that I haven't visited before.
I'm going to try to stop worrying about and chasing limited releases in Houston that people who don't even really like craft beer go after.....
Visit Freetail in San Antonio.... Real Ale in Blanco.... and Deep Ellum in Dallas.... hit up the locals in Houston.. Karbach, Buffalo Bayou, No Label, Saint Arnold, 8th Wonder and Southern Star.
To get my brewery up and running. RabbitHoleBrewing.com
I don't have a cellar. But the same problem, buy beer quicker than I can drink it.
Drink more beers , (less rare/hard to find , more local )
enjoy spending less (no more $18 for a 6pack or a 650 ml bottle)
have my first post (that get's a reply)
I am going to use that line.
Good luck, friend. If it isn't Wild Blue.. my 'lady friend' stays away.
Mine is simple. Drink more beer, have more fun.
Get in a BIF.
Expand my taste buds beyond IPA's, Stouts.
Give back more to the BA Community.
Go to Odells when I visit CO in April.
Go to Belgium and visit Cantillon and the Struise shop and then I can die happy.
Get into the local scene more, go to more testings and events, get to know some local brewers, and start a little home brewing myself.
Continue to drink new beers (shooting for 200+ new beers this year)
Visit a few breweries for tours
Continue to educate myself so I may educate others on the benefits of craft beer.
Quality over quantity, and to get into homebrewing.
Holy f@$k. Ima just keep being me.
Find a Cantillon of some variety somewhere. I'm sick of reading about how good it is without having tried it.
Hopefully make a (ski)trip to Vermont to also try anything Hill Farmstead and Heady Topper for the same reason above.
Most realistic resolution: I had 185 distinct beers in 2012(via Untappd started in March, wish I had kept up with "ticking" when I started drinking craft close to 10 years ago). I hope to double that by 2014. So far, I've had one new one in 2013 .
Drink my own beer with my new homebrew kit. Oh, and in order to do so I need to make something drinkable first.
Dink at least 300 new beers this year and brew my first batch!
Drink more, but lower quality beer.
Explore the world of sours, explore wine, find every taproom, bottle shop, brewery in WA and become completely immersed in the craft scene here.
100% on board with this resolution. The craft beer world has been inundated with so much crap. Bandwagon effect. Luckily, there are some stores around that at least curate their selection a bit.
Resolution 2: drink more out of growlers (not directly, of course)
I need to take a few days off from imbibing. Sorry.
DLD is happening, FOR SURE. I hope you can swing it.
I am on a hiatus until DLD. Can have beer at home (which I never do), but skipping tastings and spending time at events (I can go to pick up a release, but just no hanging out). Of course I will miss the folks (although I will still be in touch), but these are my biggest downfalls for weight control.
Shoot, it's only 4 mo!! No biggie. A quick jump start, and then maintain.
Cheers all, and Happy New Year!
I'm going to join the buy less, and drink from the cellar club.
Only stouts in January!
Drink beers slowly and carefully; appreciate them. Continue to try new stuff with an open mind. Approach new stuff with less expectation and more of a sense of discovery. Don't hoard. And by all means, avoid stale IPA's!
Resist buying bombers.
Find a girlfriend my beer likes
Drink less. Buy less. Enjoy more.
Drink beers from my own state only (Massachusetts).
Brew more. trade more. drink more new beers.
Cross one goal off of the list. Happy new year
Eat less, Drink More.
Work on making better home brews and try and convert more friends over to the good side of beer
find a way to get as much FBS as possible. and also try more founders and the other beers ive been wanting to try
Stop buying beer so often, and start buying beer to cellar.
Also, start homebrewing more than anything.
drink as much as I buy/shop once a week instead of 3-4
Drink more beer is my resolution.
try to pay attention to solid year round line ups over chasing every. single. limited. release.
Spend less money on fewer but higher quality beers. I already know this resolution is destined to fail!
