On the 1st August I tried my 200th beer! Since 2008 I have now tried 200 different beers and the list is going to continue to grow.
My 200th beer was Hop In The Dark by Deschutes Brewery in Oregon. It was an interesting blend of a dark ale and an IPA that they named a Cascadian Dark Ale. It incorporated all the best elements of the two types – the grapefruit aroma and bitterness of an IPA with the sweet maltiness of a dark ale. A good choice for my 200th!
I’m thinking I should aim now for 225 beers before I leave Alaska, what do you think?
