As Ale Evangelist has mentioned, I am “new to craft beer”. Right now I am drinking a Steel Reserve for the purpose of getting a buzz. I have known Ale Evangelist long enough to know that this is not beer; I am committing a “no-no”. They say that step 1 is admitting you have a problem. Step 1, check!
Here are the beers that I currently consider to be my “good beers”.
- Blue Moon
- Leinenkugel’s Blackberry Wheat
Wow, either I’m having a major brain fart or that’s it! Now you see the sad state of affairs I’m in. I know I like wheat beers, and I know I hate porters. I don’t enjoy IPA’s but I can tolerate them as opposed to the porter, which I cannot. I think this is the extent of it. I have been talking to Ale Evangelist for some time now so if I forgot something he remembers, he can add it in. I would like to try new beers but how does one like myself, who is very limited on time, achieve this? On Thursdays a friend of mine and myself always go out and run errands and usually hit some sort of bar for apps and drinks. Its a ritual. So what do I do? Do I order anything new? Or can you, the upper echelon, help me in my quest?
I will do all that you suggest pending it fits in with my crazy schedule, and in between that I will be drinking beer as your average American and posting about it. I think these posts will better help those who read to either help me or avoid my mistakes.
