Year one: Focused on high gravity, high abv beers - started reviewing but was not posting or using the forums Year two: Actively seeking out top beers in given styles - started posting, but wasn't taking pictures Year three: Looking out for any/all the limited release beers - once I missed out on CBS and Better Half, I tried not to let any beers slip past my radar again; I was photographing and posting beers regularly; made my first (and only) trade! Current year (enlightenment? ): I've had most of the top beers in styles that are available in my area, I'm staying on top of new/limited releases, and I have developed an appreciation for beers I didn't enjoy before, like sour/tart beer, light/low abv beer, and really, just about anything that strikes my fancy; I post and photograph incessantly... The future: trading. Once I can afford it, I want to get the beers that have evaded me thus far, and be the guy that can just send beers out without a trade - getting the good beers out to other BAs. But, man, beer is expensive - I don't know how you regular traders out there do it - I see the hauls you ship and receive - seems pretty far off for me right now (what with the money I spend just to stay on top of my local beers/new releases), but I'd love to be in the mix one day... Also, traveling and visiting breweries , tours, events, etc.. We'll see. Either that or rehab (lol). 'Til then, see ya on the boards. Cheers!
