I hope the freshly new year finds you well. I spent my New Years Eve attempting to finish off the keg of my 80 Schilling. (Unfortunately, I failed. But I put up a mighty strong fight.) Rather than make a list of resolutions I’ve decided to make a list of beers I plan on brewing this year. This will be by far the most beer I’ve ever brewed in one year. It’s a pretty ambitious schedule, but I don’t think it’s unachievable.

I’ve already begun purchasing my hops now (wow, what a pain in the pocketbook) to make sure I’m fully stocked for the year. I’m going to continue to use the blog to update my progress along the way. Make sure to stay tuned to find out which ones flounder (hopefully none) and which ones flourish (hopefully all.)
