33 Beers

I’ve taken an odd route through tracking the beer that I drink. I used to use Untappd religiously, even entering in the homebrew that I drank. Then I stopped. Then I started again, though I still didn’t use the social features: I’d load the app, check in to the beer I had, then close the app. No “toasts” or comments or anything of the sort. Last year I began the great purge of “quantified self” habits: I tracked for the sake of tracking, and the habits just stressed me out rather than providing any benefit.

And yet, I still need to work on mindfulness. I didn’t so much care about recording the beers I drank as I did about thinking about them. I read a post on the Kegworks blog: 10 Beer Fest Essentials. A tasting notebook, you say…! I do like hand writing things. I stopped at the Kegworks store and picked up a 33 Bottles of Beer notebook, taking it with me to our second book club discussion.

Without further ado: a list of the 33 beers that I drank (recorded only if it was the first time I had tasted it since starting the notebook).
