2014: The year that was

Now that we’re in 2015 I thought I’d look back through our posts from last year and aggregate some data, ala the Feltron Annual Report.

2014-03-18 14.40.49

New beer

Here’s a list of every beer we made in 2014. Those marked with an asterisk were very limited release, being samples/pints only at the brewery or only sent to one bar, are marked with an asterisk. It doesn’t include beers we made in the past and re-released, like Wet Frank or Oh Snap!

  1. Justin told me that he was recognized at a beer event, not as “the Kegworks homebrewing guy” but as “the guy from the Reading Rainbow video”, which basically made my goddamn year.
