50 Beers in 50 Days

I’m starting 2019 on a personal mission. My plan is to drink 50 different beers in the first 50 days of the year. That doesn’t necessarily mean one beer each day, but a total of 50 over 50 days.

Then, starting February 20, I will go 50 days without a beer.

Then, starting April 10, I will take a self-assessment. Do I feel healthier? Am I happier? Am I an emotional wreck? Is there no significant difference?

I like beer. I really like craft beers. I really like craft beers that are dark, or hoppy, or unique; or possibly all three things at the same time. I hate to think that I’ll be better off without beer, but maybe that will be the case. My father had to stop drinking during the last 8 to 10 years of his life. He still liked beer, but beer didn’t like him.

I’ll keep a running list here, and then report out on my conclusions in April and May.

  • Day 2 – Beer 1) Big Sky IPA, bottle
  • Day 4 – Beer 2) Bent Paddle Harness IPA
    • Beer 3) Bent Paddle Black
    • Beer 4) Beaver Island Sweet Miss Stout
  • Day 7 – Beer 5) Summit Extra Pale Ale
    • Beer 6) Lake Superior Duluth Coffee Stout
  • Days 8, 9, 10 – ice fishing on Lake of the Woods – Beer 7) Fulton Citra Double Dry-Hopped 300 bottle
    • Beer 8) Shiner Bohemian Black Lager bottle
    • Beer 9) Indeed Flavorwave IPA can.

    • Beer 11) Bell’s Two Hearted Ale
  • Day 16 – Beer 12) Alaskan Icy Bay IPA (meh!!)
