I officially completed this goal back in August; that was when I actually drank my 200th beer (<— click on this link to see the entire list of 200 beers I drank). However, since the goal is “Getting my name in the Ring of Honor” I guess I couldn’t count this as completely completed until I actually got my plate unveiled (for information about the “rules” of getting in the Ring of Honor, click here).
This past Sunday was my long awaited plate party. For spending upwards of $2,500 on beer, food, and tips, Flying Saucer will host your “unveiling” with a $100 bar tab on them. And by holding it on Sunday, we could take advantage of the NC beer special ($3 NC drafts), meaning the $100 goes further!
I could tell you all about it but this is probably a story best told through photographs…
People keep asking me if I plan on doing another plate and the answer is an emphatic “NO!” I’m really glad I did it because it did help me understand and appreciate beer; I actually now voluntarily drink beer even when I’m not getting credit for it. But to do 200 beers again just doesn’t appeal to me.
So what beer/drinking goals do you have? Anyone have a goal to STOP drinking?
