50 Beers to Try Before You Die

GQ has recently published a list of 50 beers to try before you die.  Sounds like my kind of challenge.  I’ve had several of these before, but I’m going to start working on the list fresh, which is probably a bad idea, because most of the ones I recognizes I remember as not liking at all.  I tend to hate IPAs and stouts, but they don’t call me “The Goat” because I turn shit down.

  1. Hank Says:

    You should have Schmuel Aarkvark beer. It’s made in Iowa City, and is very strong.

  2. Nick Says:

    Also should have included Young’s Old Nick Barley Wine. And not just because we share a name.
