I blog primarily over at "geosciblog" (http://geosciblog.blogspot.com), I am doing this one for fun. It is inspired by 30+ years of beer can collecting and having tried more than 3,000 different American beers during that time. “. . . And beer was drunk with reverence, as it ought to be.” — G. K.

31 Flavors for March

I fell a little short in March, but because of the 5 extra carried over from January, I am still up-to-date on my goal of trying 365 new beers this year. 90 days so far (through March 31) and 90 new beers (or this year's version of a previously-tried micro/brewpub seasonal beer).

For March:

Abita Christmas Ale ‘08
Allagash Black
Avery The Czar Stout
Ballantine Burton Ale
Bard’s Tale Dragon’s Gold
Coney Island Human Blockhead
Harpoon Celtic Ale
Kennebunkport Blueberry Wheat Ale
Oskar Blues Mama’s Little Yella Pils
Otter Creek Copper Ale
Shipyard Imperial Porter
Smuttynose Imperial Stout
Smuttynose Old Brown Dog Ale
Smuttynose Robust Porter
Stone Old Guardian Barley Wine
Terrapin Monk’s Revenge
Twain’s Heaven for Climate Golden Ale 3/09
Twain’s Honest Lender Brown
Twain’s Mad Happy Pale Ale
Twain’s Temperate Temperance Mild
Twain’s Thirty Days Belgian Black
Twain’s Three Lies Cocoa Stout
Uinta Wildfire Organic Pale Ale
Weyerbacher Heresy Stout
Weyerbacher Olde Heathen Stout
Yazoo Pale Ale

There are another 5 or 6 bottles in the fridge or pantry that I haven't tried yet, plus new brands on the market, when I can find single bottles.

When work permits it, I will try to visit another brewpub, to keep up with my goal of 1 different brewpub visit per month. Other than the one that is about 10 miles from here in Alpharetta, GA (already been there this year), most of the other ones are either in Athens (about 50 miles) or in Atlanta (25 - 30 miles plus traffic time), or Dahlonega (about 50 or so miles). There is a slight chance I might get to Big River in Chattanooga this Saturday after doing some geological photography in NW Ga.

Remarks on the Tasting of the Ballantine Burton Ale...

were posted over at my other blog, on March 25. Because of my work schedule, I don't have time, right now to post it here, though I may try sometime soon. So, for the time being, skip on over there for my thoughts on this historic brew.
