A list of beers I enjoyed in 2012

According to Untappd I’ve drunk 105 unique beers over the last 12 months and I would say on the most part they have been pretty good.

Here are my highlights:

  • G’Day Mate by Mikkeller.
  • Citra by Oakham Ales
  • Raid Beer by TO OI
  • Hot Rod Habanero by Mikkeller
  • Kashmir by Acorn Brewery
  • Dr Rudi by Arbor Ales
  • Smoked Black IPA by Tiny Rebel Brewing Co
  • Brewed Amakening by Cromarty Brewing Co
  • Kill Your Darlings by Thornbridge
  • Single Hop Sorachi Ace IPA by Mikkeller
  • Dalston Black IPA by Brodies
  • Milk Chocolate Stout by Dark Star

Mikkeller’s G’Day Mate was undoubtedly the best beer I had last year. An explosion of galaxy hops which literally refreshed the parts other beers couldn’t reach.

Giving a little back, social style

Following on from my previous post about the desire for followers versus a desire to help, well, here is the ultimate helping tool, Cofacio.

Calling itself a help engine it is a more ‘concious’ version of say yahoo answers. You simply join Cofacio, either post a question, or search for a topic that you feel you can provide an answer for, it could be films, wine or skateboards. Every time you post a question or an answer, you earn points. You can then donate those points to a cause, which in turn is supported by the sponsors.

I’ve had a quick play around with it. I’ve not posted any questions yet but I have answered a few. Personally, I think it is one to watch.
