2019 goals link: 2019 Beer Goals + Year in Reviewhttps://community.ratebeer.com/t/2019-beer-goals-year-in-review/9842/29
My 2019 goals and ½ way through:
A. A white month in Jan, started it again so 1/31 part Done! ½: Can also tell that the
erysipelas helped a lot to avoid alcoholic beverages of all kinds😉.
B. 185 countries, currently at 177. // ½: 189 and one in the cellar, ie Done thx to friendly traders!
C. 355 Swedish breweries currently at 323. ½: Currently 340 – over 50% of the goal.
D. Average from 3,26 to 3,27 – ½: Done 3,27 and will not drink any more bad beers😉
E. H index for countries from 27 to 32 – // ½: Still at 27 … this one is not going well, and I’m been really focusing but struggling.
F. H index for styles from 48 to 53 – // ½: 49, tougher than expected and with the new styles created didn’t help at all vs this goal.
G. Go to Brussels and Fix the Faros up to 10 – hard // ½: Stil 5! Had an Eylenbosch Faro Extra – 88 but not rateable. Manage to find a De Cam Faro at Beer Planet and a Timmerman at Indian bottle shop in Brussels. Can not really see that this will happen…
H. Regions from 107 to 115 // ½: 110 – will be hard.

My 2019 beer goals include rating less beers and spending far less on craft beer, and I’ve done a great job of both.

  1. Unless I stop rating in rb, will not happen
  2. Done. No more new capitals planned this year.
  3. Met Danish crew, some nice Finns, hopefully will meet more beer-y people around Bxl Fest.
  4. This is on pause as rb has still not fixed the styles (why are 2 mead styles under beer styles?!) and admins have not put big effort into fixing styles as things may change… At the moment I have 11 beer styles under 10+another 17 beer styles under 20. Unlikely that I will reach 10 of each style, even if things are fixed.
  5. 2 new countries ticked and 1 in untappd backlog (so 3 in toal), 3 new counties ticked. I guess the goal of 110 countries and counties may be reached in this year.

> • Explore Berlin and surroundings. Visit all Berlin breweries and rate 1 of each. Currently at 35/77 breweries and at 132 rates.
Got that well covered in the 6 months I lived there. 61/82 breweries, misisng ones mostly client brewers and very small ones with bad beer. 424 rates now so almost 300 new!

I am quite happy so far with how I get along. Trying to finish the open goals now.
