It has been 16 months and 500 beers since I first uploaded my list, and the differences between the first and the current list are huge. In terms of breweries, I only had 1 Weyerbacher and 6 Dogfish Head brews at first, but now have 16 and 37, respectively. Depending on one’s definition of macro, 50-80 of the brews on v2.97 were macro, but that number has likely only increased to 60-100, meaning overall macro representation has fallen from around 20% to around 10%. A year from now, it should be around 5%. I like this.
The basic idea behind this list is to remember what I’ve had - that’s about it. When I first started making the list, I remembered around 225 beers well enough to add them, but probably already had 350-400 unique beers by that point. So my list started with around 60% of the beers I have had, but is likely above 90% by this point (based on the logic that 1. every subsequent beer gets added and increases percentage and 2. beers that did not make the list at first often do so in the future). A year from now, it should be around 95%. I like this.
