You’ve noticed that I’ve been reviewing more beers lately. I’ll be doing a lot more of that over the coming weeks and months; part of what I’ve done with some of my Christmas and birthday money this year was buy a bunch of beer that I haven’t had before, and I plan to post a review and tasting notes for each.
I suppose if I’d made any New Year’s resolutions, this would be one: try as many new beers as I can!
Anyway, I thought I’d post a list of the beers I’ve bought recently to try. Not counting the ones I’ve already reviewed this year. (Not doing links, either… I’ll link them as I review them.)
- Celis White
- Alaskan Winter Ale and 2005 Smoked Porter
- Otter Creek Copper Ale
- Siletz Chocolate Porter and Winter Warmer Ale
- Melbourne Brothers Strawberry
- Pelican Brewery India Pelican Ale
- Saison du Pont
- Rogue FestivAle
- Trappistes Rochefort 10
- Dogfish Head Aprihop
- North Coast 2004 Old Stock Ale
- Anderson Valley Winter Solstice
I’ve also been eyeing Widmer’s Snow Plow milk stout and Goose Island Stout, which I saw at Fred Meyer…
Side note, to Central Oregonians: I’ve said this before, but I think Newport Avenue Market on the westside really has the largest and best beer selection in town.
