Last night, I hit 2,500 total beers logged on Untappd.

And I don’t even feel hungover today.

Those beverages stretch out to more than four years using the beer-centric social network, started back when it was a mobile website and not an app. It roughly averages out to about two beers per day, which is normally what I limit myself to each night.

I began using Untappd shortly after starting my beer and running streak, and it has continued to be a place where I keep track of the beers I drink and see what others are toasting and reviewing. In total, I’ve had nearly 900 different varieties of beer, and it’s where I keep track of trying new beers like my recent check-in Cold Pressed Macchiato Espresso Stout by Abita.

I’m not religious about using it, and sometimes there’s a day (or three) where I forget to add my beer. But for me, the biggest value for Untappd is when I’m in the beer aisle and trying to make a choice but feel paralyzed by options. Untappd gives me quick overall ratings as well as letting me know if I’ve tried this beer before.

A few of my Untappd favorites from recent check-ins include the Sierra Nevada IPA variety pack (Blindfold Black IPA, Golden IPA and Torpedo Extra IPA) as well as the warming Bell’s Kalamazoo Stout and the bike-themed Ride Again pale ale in a can from Lucette Brewing.

How about you? How do you track or take notes of the new types of beer you enjoy? If you’re on Untappd, you can add me here.

Brewery Travels: My Favorite Brewery/Beer from Each State

In my ongoing quest to visit breweries all across this great land, I have now surpassed the 400 mark, and they’ve been spread across 37 states and 175+ cities. To celebrate this landmark, I’ve put together a ‘Special Edition’ of Brewery Travels: A rundown of my favorites in each of the states visited so far.

Why a Miller Lite Was the Best Beer I’ve Ever Had

I’ve worked in craft beer for nearly five years now. I’ve had the fortune to try some truly amazing brews: Pliny the Elder, Heady Topper, Bourbon Barrel Aged Expedition Stout. Supplication? I’ve got one in my mini-fridge. The reason I’m telling you this is because I want to frame my statements here properly. I’ve had good beer, trust me. The best beer I’ve ever had, though, was a Miller Lite.
