Thankfully, this shit-hole of a year has less than 8 hours left in it, so I guess its time for my annual look back on the year that was.
This year was shit.
But the brewing wasn’t bad!
The Good: Counting a double-header today, I managed to squeeze in 20 brews this year – a personal best since my son came along (although less than half of my halcyon years back when I was in my 20’s). By-and-large, this years beers and meads were excellent.
I also pulled off a few fun experiments, including a few which will be published in 2021.
The Bad: There was (and still is) a pandemic. My dog died. A lot of other bad shit went down.
The Ugly: Ibid.
