List of Beers & Ciders that I enjoy

The older I get, the more I find myself trying new things; especially different beers and ciders from right here in the United States and around the world. It occurs to me that I should probably keep a list of those I like, then maybe write something up about each of them. So….here is the list so far (though it is limited at this time). If you have some suggestions on those that I need to try, please feel free to suggest them in the comments.

That’s all I have the time for today. As I get time, I will add to the list. Eventually, I will begin to write a little about them each to document what I like about them.

Cheers!
