Has been launched with no fanfare.
Was expected <1k so better stats than I expected:
That impressive amount of new breweries
My standard ~500 rates. 20% coming as new brewery ticks pretty good. 112 styles is decent I assume this is both beer and non-beer.
Check https://www.ratebeer.com/legacy-my-year-in-beer/id/ for more detailed stats.
My most rated style: Low / No Alcohol Beer - Pale
My rates slowed down in last 6 months of 2022 but I wouldn’t have made top 50 anyway. Pretty happy with 1k rates, had some decent beer.
Interestingly only picked up 3 brand new breweries.
|Wicklow Wolf Brewing Company||County Wicklow||3||3.93|
|Dot Brew||County Dublin||12||3.84|
|Gravity Brewing (Budapest)||Hungary||5||3.82|
|Heart of Darkness Brewery||Vietnam||3||3.8|

Oops, my copying didn’t come out too well!
In an attempt to save money in 2022, plus increased family obligations as my kid has gotten older, I’ve slowed down considerably. I’d wager I also have about one beer on average between M-Th, and it’s often a repeat of something I’ve already had.
I attended two big festivals that accounted for probably 20% of my ratings. Our local Washington DC gatherings are starting to return to a pre-covid level as well, which probably was at least 25% of my ratings, if I’d hazard a guess.
Looking to pass through DC for a night mid / late April in 2023.
Will be a Thursday I think … perhaps we could tie our visit in with a tasting or meet up of some sort (be 3 or 4 of us I think)
Only 70 ratings this year, 12 Kolsch ones. 2023 will have more of both.
