Major Milestone - 400th Review - What's next??

As many of our 2beerguys friends and family already know, we have reached a major milestone for 2Beerguys.com. Yes, we have reached our 400th review and 4000+ website hits. We are very thankful for the enthusiasm from our friends and 2Beerguys family. This is our adventure and we can't do it without YOU!!!

A quick recap of the 400th review festivities..

On Sunday, May 27th, we met at Ian's house to brew and spend the day with our friends. We started brewing around 10 am. As mentioned in two previous posts, we brewed a Belgian Wit beer that we named: "Wallen's Wit and our Good Looks". During the six hours of brewing, there was plenty of time for eating, wiffle ball, and tasting. For this glorious event, we choose the following three offerings to review..

Three Floyds Brewing Company Gumballhead Wheat Ale (399), Great Divide Brewing Co. Oak Aged Yeti Imperial Stout (400), and Victory Brewing Company V12(401).

We were very please with this selection. The Gumballhead was a special treat brought by Andy/Nerissa, specially flown in from Ohio. The Oaked Yeti and V12 had been in the queue for quite sometime (making our mouth water). These offerings were quite tasty. The 400th beer received the highest score (This is strange for us... typically we pick 2-3 for the milestone and the 99th/01 beer was better). Please check out the reviews for additional details..

So... What's next?

- Summer time beer dinners?

Ian and I have attended our first beer dinner. We hope to organize a beer dinner (or two) in the Newburyport area, during the Yankee Homecoming time period. We have discussed this many times, we just need to take the next step and speak to the chefs/restaurants.

- 500th beer review?

This is going to be an amazing achievement for 2Beerguys.com. Five Hundredth review...WOWser... When we started this adventure, we didn't know how long it would last. The train is still rolling :) WOO WOOOOO

For the 500th review, we have a dream to convince a brewery to create us a special beer. It doesn't have to have our name, but if we were somehow involved in the brewing process or watched it brewing/bottling, that would be amazing.

- Brewing more beer

Yes. With two batches in.. I am excited. It's confirmed that Andy is our head brew master. Why Andy... well he's part brain and part machine. He keeps us in line and on task.

If you have an recipe/request for something to try, please let us know. Also, if you would like to learn how to brew, drop us a note.

Well, time to get back to the computer world.

Bye for now.


Drink craft beer, You've EARNED IT!!
