Welcome to 2013 and a possible dry spell

Well, that’s it for another year. Goodbye 2012. Hello 2013.

Happy New Year to one and all!

The whole Christmas/New Year/festivities/shenanigans went off without incident at 250 Beers HQ. We all ate extremely well and were watered rather well too. Personally, a little too well to be honest.

I managed to eradicate my entire Christmas Super-Stash of beers during the break from work. All 31 different types of beer…gone.

I started the journey on the 22nd December and finished during the evening of January 1st. 31 bottles dissipated in 11 days.

I can honestly say that not one single beer was shit. Obviously, some were better than others but surprisingly none of them performed poorly. I’d happily drink every single one of them again.

Over the coming weeks, I’ll post some notes/reviews that I penned during my own little beerfest. They’ll be accompanied by some photos that I took at the time of consumption. Those of you that follow me on Twitter will have witnessed these photo’s within minutes of the beers being poured. Those very same photos will be recycled on this blog.

Many of these photos were taken via Instagram. I signed up for an account a few months ago. I try hard not to be a social networking freak (even though you can follow me on Facebook and Twitter!), the filters on Instagram can make photos look awesome – no doubt about it. When posting photos on Instagram, I always endeavour to add a filter that keeps the beer looking like it did when first poured. For example, I’d never add a black and white filter to a photo of a very red beer – pointless.

I’m toying with the idea of drying out for a few weeks. The recent hot spell here in Queensland combined with a huge lack of rain has meant that my lawns have dried out. I might follow suit for a while. Not sure how it will go though. I’ll keep you updated on this.
