My work schedule has been crazy over the past month, compounded by the Buffalo Sabres schedule (and they haven’t been tearing it up) and normal day to day trappings, it has been a very busy month.  During the month, I have started to come to the conclusion that I was spending way too much on craft beer each month.  My basement has over 200+ bottles in it just aging away and I feel guilty opening something without sharing with other people.  The amount of time and money spent travelling all over, chasing the flavor of the month made me realize that there are better things to do in life.  While I am not giving up drinking or even purchasing craft beer, I am just going to cut way back on it and focus on the few beers that I actually want and not just ‘the next release’.

  • Fat Heads IBUsive ~ American Double / Imperial IPA ~ 4.49 /5 Rating
