366 Days of Beer (over!)

It’s finally over…D’s quest to drink a different beer every day for a year, and to review each beer on Beer Advocate, ended yesterday with Chimay (Red) Premiere.

The list is below, and it represents 59 styles. He had 177 from the bottle, 139 on draft (CO2), 30 on cask, 16 from cans and 4 on draft (Nitro). They came from 185 different breweries. Of the top five, an even 13 came from our favorites – Bullfrog Brewery and Selin’s Grove Brewing Co. – 10 from Southern Tier, 8 from Tröegs and 7 from New Glarus.

There were beers from 12 different countries and 33 states, the most popular of which were PA (101), CA and NY (32), WI (27) and MI (21).

I’ve listed them here, sorted by brewery and in as best an alphabetical order as I could.
