500 Beers Challenge – Update 2

The march to my 500 brew target for the year continues. And February has been a strong month, with the likes of Modern Times, Magic Rock, Northern Monk, BrewDog and Pressure Drop making their debuts on the list.

A trip to The Netherlands saw a good batch of Dutch beers that I probably wouldn’t have been able to get my hands on otherwise (not to mention a badge on Untappd that I never thought I’d see). An influx of New Zealand brews into the country made sure the list wasn’t becoming a total Euro/American-fest (if/when I reach 500, I cannot wait to geek out and pull out some stats of how much beer I’ve had from where, average ABV, etc.) and I’ve also exhausted the craft range at my local Tesco. Which I reckon is a blessing in disguise as it means I’ll get to spend more time at the likes of We Brought Beer (all 3 of them) and Ghost Whale – who I can’t praise enough for keeping their supply of beer so fresh and well-stocked!

Anyway, enough waxing. Onto the beers and see you next month!
