It’s quite amazing how many good choices there are out there. For Canada’s 150th birthday (last year), I tried 150 different ones. I will drink many again and found a surprising number of very special ones.
My wife and I, and several friends, are members of the World of beer loyalty program, which used to reward you for drinking unique beers. My wife was just she of 1000 when they shut down that part of the program at the end of last year (last month), and had started her membership just a few years ago. I hit 1250-ish in early 2016 (then focused on helping her), after about 5 years of "effort", while a close friend and bandmate, who has needed no help, hit 2500 I believe, after 7 years of membership.
150 in a year. yeesh. Six or seven months, max!
I keed, I keed! We go weekly as a social gathering. Plus, the WoB allows retail takeaway, so we often stocked up on oddball beers to take home for later in the week. So procuring 6 or 8 unique beers a week is pretty easy, as long as you have a wide variety of taste. If all you like is one type (whether it be pilsner, or brown ale, or whatever), you may be challenged to find sufficient unique beers...
