The only authority for all things beer…

Memorable Beers of 2013

photo (5)Happy New Year! 2013 was a PHENOMENAL YEAR of tasting new beers… I got to finally experience Dark Lord Day and visit one of my all-time favorite breweries, Three Floyds. In addition, I got to visit Oregon aka “craft beer mecca” in Portland and Bend where there were so many outstanding breweries including Deschutes, Hair of the Dog, 10 Barrel, and Boneyard. I anticipate that 2014 will be another special year especially for theBeerAuthority brand with eBooks, apparel, and glassware sales in the works as well as a personal “brewcierge” web/app service which I hope to spread the craftbeer knowledge and inspiration.

Without further ado, here are some of my most memorable beers of 2013:
