Well, just a few days ago I let you know that I was sick of typing Still More @Untappd Badges 17, so I stopped. I promised that I would follow up with a "special edition of the @Untappd Badges".
So here we go.
Usually, in the past I don't check into very many beers at GABF. This year, I didn't at the festival either, but when I got home I checked into all the beers that I had written down during the festival (which was a lot).
Obviously, first and foremost, we have ...
I actually got this beer on Thursday night at the SheppyBrew Brewery (home). You can get the badge by checking in a beer within a ten mile radius of the Convention Center. My home is in that 10 mile radius. The beer I had was Hail Storm Summer Saison and it was wonderful.
Well, GABF is a chance for me to seek out sour beers, and I really tried a bunch. I flew through levels 3 through 6 in those two sessions. I probably even missed some of the sour beers I tried. For what it is worth, the beer that pushed me to level 6 was Tart Berliner Weisse by Champion Brewing Company. I need 3 more sours to get to level 7.
Piloncillo Brown by Groundswell Brewing Company. I only need 2 more browns to get to the next level.
The Beer Model loves to seek out pumpkin beers at GABF. I had to have a few with her, although I certainly did not have all of them that she tried. In fact, I didn't actually get this badge with a GABF beer. The beer that got me this badge was one of my own ... Will-o'-Wisp Pumpkin Ale by SheppyBrew Home Brewery.
As I type this, I currently have 195 untappd badges and have checked in 816 unique beers. That seems like a lot of beer, although I some of my untappd "friends" have a bunch more than I do.
