6 Years – Still soaked in beer after all this time

Hey there, it’s Beer Soaked Erik and I have posted way more on Instagram than here on the blog or Facebook, I’m not apologizing, just saying that micro-blogging with photos on Instagram has been my way of staying in touch with folks in the beer world lately. You can see some of my recent posts in the sidebar on BeerSoaked.com, and if you follow me on Twitter then you’ve probably seen the shift from traditional long form posts to much shorter photo based beer commentary. But having said that, there’s still a place for blog posts.

Here we are in the sixth year of BeerSoaked.com. It’s hard to believe that 6 years ago this site was just a drunken thought with Beer Soaked Scott and Kevin at an IPA tasting event at Hi-Time Wine and now it’s a reality. We’ve been documenting our discovery and appreciation for craft beer for 6 years now. Six years! Wow, time flies when you’re having craft beer. So I just popped the cap on a 2011 Sierra Nevada Bigfoot from the Beer Soaked Fridge and made a few top 6 lists to celebrate our sixth Beer Soaked year. Cheers, and thanks for reading!

Ruining palates for ten years – 10.8% ABV – 110 IBU

I have to admit that back in June 2002 I was not drinking the first batch of Stone Ruination India Pale Ale. At that point the bitterest beer on my list was still Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. It wasn’t until fairly recently, that I started getting into the high IBUs. (International Bittering Units)

BE WARNED: This one is a whopping 110 IBUs! Continue reading
