If you know me or of me, you will know I like beer. Over the last few years I have been collecting photos of every new beer I have.
I now have over 1,700 individual beers photographed and have realised that many beers that I assumed I have photos of, I haven't.

This blog will be therefore be an account of my quest for new beers to photo and how I enjoyed them (or not).
If you could click on an advert as you leave the blog I would be very grateful.

My box of Hefe Weizen from Germany (three)

Not been on here for a while but here are some more of the German wheat beers I got a couple of months ago. Its a bit pointless me trying to describe these beers, as I love most German wheat beers and they mostly taste the same, gorgeous.

I still have a lot left to try, even after these.
