February 2014 Cellar Update

It seems as though more and more time is passing between these cellar updates. Perviously I had lamented at reaching a year between updates. Now, we're pushing past a year and a half. I guess it's good to be busy, but having to update the cellar inventory so sporadically is…

September 2012 Cellar Update

It's been nearly a full year since the last cellar update. That's just ridiculous. So, yesterday I spent some time going through the chest freezer of wonder and synced up my inventory with a list that was woefully outdated. It only took a little over an hour, but it looks…

October 2011 Cellar Update

It's that time of year again — time for another Barley Blog cellar update. Since the last list of goodies was published, I've moved my stash (currently at 184 bottles) into a chest freezer for a more stable aging environment. You can check out the set-up here. After a few…

April 2011 Cellar Update

Well, it's been just about seven months since I last posted an updated cellar list. Needless to say a good number of beers have come and gone in that time, but many have also survived to live another day (or two). I've gotten a little more organized with regards to…

September 2010 Cellar Update

Late last night, after a pretty darn good Labor Day spent at my folks place, I got bored. And as often happens when that occurs I go exploring in the basement to see what all has survived the Summer and my impatient nature. I've had a relatively up-to-date tally running…

May Cellar Update

Holy cow, it's been almost 6 months sing the last time I thoroughly checked the basement stash. The winter months saw a good deal of tasty brews disappear from the list, but the past couple of months has seen an increase in the diversity of products hidden away. At any…

November Cellar Update

It's been a few months since the last update and all I can say is that I have been doing some solid stocking up for the Winter season. Barleywines, seasonals and a couple of stouts have been added to the mix. This is definitely the time of year that the…

June Cellar Update

You've just gotta love getting a little birthday money to play with. While I didn't blow it all on beer, I did indulge myself a bit and still probably spent too much. Of note since the May update, there was a rash of barleywine disappearances — even though I felt…

May Cellar Update

Looking back through the site the other day I noticed that I hadn't posted a recent cellar update. More curious as to how my cellaring has been effected by the economy, I grabbed pad and pen and worked my way over treadmills, around boxes and toys to the dark corner…

In the Fridge/Cellar IX

Well, I just got back from a run to Total Wine and, luckily, didn't do too much damage to the wallet. I'm not sure if I arrived after a restocking or perhaps passed through some sort of worm hole in the space/time continuum, but the shop has several more Belgian…

December Cellar Update

It's been a couple of months since I last took stock of what I had been hoarding in the basement. Looking over the numbers there has been some pretty decent turnover among some of the items while a few of the mainstays have remained intact, for the most part. The…

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…
