Note: My smallest beer haul ever. I spent my finances this month upgrading home-brew equipment, doing more batches (YAY SOUR BEERZ) and replenishing my savings account after a 2 week trip to Belgium, Netherlands and Denmark followed by a weekend in Philly. I bought 8 Tired Hands Growlers (not pictured) so that’s a part of the beer haul but those were consumed. For the most part, I didn’t buy much this month nor did I take too many photos and I expect May to be almost identical as far as hauls go.

In the last 2 months, I’ve cleared out one of my 7 beer shelves on the cellar. I’ve been persistently drinking down my cellar of all undesirables and not replacing those beers with more undesirables. I’m also trading away beers I already have and not trading out a lot of fresh Vermont IPAs like I was last year. Overall, slimming things down a bit to make the cellar more manageable and clear a few shelves for home-brew carboys. Every beer I’m brewing over the next few weeks involves wild yeast so that’s a new thing for me and requires getting rid of crap I don’t want.

Sorry for the small beer haul. May’s haul will be similar.

The biggest “haul” of April was that I bought a new car..yes, I bought a new car just weeks after getting back from Europe. My life – budget is totally blown for the next 2-3 months and that’s okay. I love the new car and finally put an adult expense over beer. It feels good
