Cellaring Update

without comments

Yes, I have a beer cellar. Well, to be honest, it’s just a wine cellar with all that yucky wine scooped out and the sweet nectar of beer crammed in there instead. I’ll tell you more about the cellar itself later; today I just want to talk about what’s in the cellar. There are lots of places online where you can track how your favourite wines are maturing over time, but virtually nothing like that for beer. While I can’t promise to cover every beer known to man (although I do swear to try), I will periodically update you on what I have and how it’s doing.

That’s what the new info on the right is all about. Here’s how to interpret it:

Drink Now
Cellared ales that have peaked, and are probably getting worse. Consume them now, quick! I don’t care if you’re at work. Go home and get drunk!

In Their Prime
These are improving still, but are oh-so-tasty as well. Pull one out periodically to see how it’s maturing.

Hold!
Whoa, pardner, give these time. They’re only going up.

Bragging Rights
Ales that don’t really need cellaring. I’m just listing them here because I’m a dick.
