Three Months Down!

As I finished tonight’s beer article, it occurred to me that I am now officially one quarter of the way through my year of beer.

Spoils from a recent beer run

In some ways, this challenge has been easier than I thought it would be. I found a great liquor store that has kept me well-supplied with a variety of individual bottles of beer, and the excitement of from all this abundance of new beer has offset the sense of loss that comes with pledging to drink only one beer a day.

Challenges rarely arise from where they are expected. I definitely underestimated how much focus and sacrifice this project would actually require.

You see, I get no time off from this challenge. There’s another beer waiting for me every day. There have been nights — whether tired, sick, or traveling — when drinking a beer was the LAST thing I wanted to do.  Exploring the appearance, aroma, and flavor of a new beer every single day has required more time and mental energy during the few hours I have after the workday has ended than I ever realized it would consume.

But it’s worth it.  I couldn’t keep doing this every day for a year if it weren’t.

Together, you and I have been discovering new beer every day. My favorite comments are from people who have tried a new beer or style after reading about it on this site. So I want to thank all of you who have been reading, commenting, joining the discussion, and sending me beer recommendations!

Most of all, I want to thank my wife for putting up with all of this nonsense. I truly couldn’t put the time, energy, and money into this project without her full support — even if it does turn her into a self-described “beer widow” for a couple of hours every night.

So to my wife: the beer comes and goes, but I’ll always have you.

And yes, that sounded much sweeter in my head.
