2010: My Year in Reviews


Since mid-August, I've reviewed 50 beers.  My reviews are based on my personal tastes—not on adherence to style guidelines.  While I may not know what a beer is supposed to taste like, I know what I like.  So for my 2010 retrospective, I thought I'd revisit my favorite beers.

Of the 50 beers, I awarded a 5 star rating to only 3 beers (6% of all reviewed).  These are the beers I considered to be "Liquid Perfection":

A 4 star rating went to 20 brews (40% of those reviewed).  This is the "Really Good!  I want this Again!" category.  These are beers I really liked and would buy again.

My first few months as a blogging beer geek have been a great experience.  I've discovered great beers, visited many breweries, and made new friends along the way.  I can't wait to see what 2011 brings!

Best wishes to you and yours for a Happy & Healthy New Year!  Cheers!

  1. Good Luck in 2011. Love your blog. You add to my beer tasting experience. A "blue collar" approach to microbrew review. Some of the other blogs can be a little snobby and indulgent (I guess blogs are supposed to be a little indulgent). Your blog feels like I'm having a beer and a discussion with a friend. My toast for the new year is for more imbiders to "find" you.

  2. Mark, that's the best compliment I could get! Thanks for reading and contributing. That's what makes it fun for me. If I didn't have interaction from you and other readers, I would have stopped doing this long ago. Here's to a great 2011! Cheers!
