After over ten years of enjoying craft beer, and five years of really thinking about what I was drinking, I’ve realized that there is a minimal difference in most beer. My observation is that the vast majority of beer is very good, a bit of it is great, and very few things rank as the greatest. Luckily, not very few beers are bad, though they are out there. I could just write about my anecdotal evidence, personal thoughts, observations, and opinions, but I decided to collect some data to see if my observation is correct.
The day has finally arrived. 12/12/12. I’ve talked about the hype behind this beer before but I’ll very quickly say that this has been rated as the best beer in the world and has been one of the hardest to get. Starting today, and likely only today as it will sell out, the monks have changed their rules so instead of only buying it at the abbey you can buy it across America.
I was lucky enough to win a lottery drawing to be able to pay $85 for the 6-pack + 2 glasses. Some are going to the basement for aging, some are being saved for a tasting with friends, but 1… 1 is going down tonight!
