Cellar Update

As regular visitors may know I threw myself on a strict diet when it came to purchasing beers for longer term storage a couple of months ago. The initial inventory of the cellared beers was definitely a shock to my system and set the wheels in motion for a little cost cutting and smarter planning on my part.

Well, it’s been a couple of months since that initial shock and I thought it would be interesting to see where we stack up in terms of my spending and cellaring habits. As of this past weekend, I’ve knocked my beer budget down to about $50-$60 a month and raided the cellar a bit in an effort to help offset the monthly damage to the wallet.

A few beers have disappeared from June’s list and a few have been added, but I’ve tried to keep the turn over between incoming and outgoing beers to a minimum — especially without adding too many more.
