Beer Journal #27: My Growing List of Beers Consumed Since I Began My Quest

I have a ritual when I have a beer. After I select a beer from the refrigerator (my selection always includes several single bottles of beers I've never drank). I record the name of the beer on my computer beer list. Next, I take a picture of the beer bottle. Then I pour the beer into a glass (a Teku glass) and photograph the empty bottle and the glass. I also write the name of the beer on my calender on the date I drink it.

When the bottle is dry, I apply a sheet of Label Lift to the bottle label, take the label off, write the date and my rating on the back of the label. I put the label on a shelf until I accumulate enough to create a beer journal blog post. After they've made their appearance on my blog, I put the labels in my album.

You're right. It's a challenge to find time to actually drink the damn beer!!!!

If we dine at a restaurant that doesn't have a bottled beer available that I've not tried, I drink water. Then, when I get home, I have a never-tried beer; several are always chilling in my refrigerator.

Call me crazy and I'll reply "Thank you."

P.S. I don't expect you to read the list, just to see how long it is.
