The Beer of the Month for
January 2, 2017
2016 ended as another solid year for Brewpalace, totaling 130 bottles. A slow first half of the year had me worried there for a while, but in the end I was just able to meet the 120 yearly target just before Christmas. 2016 saw a few key trends, none of them any good:

So after 13 years a big change for the Tech stack behind Brewpalace. I just finished porting everything over to Amazon Web Services. Yes, The Cloud that you always hear about. I'm going to try and see how this works for a while - its a one year free trial on a pretty small machine. But I am tired of running it at home with all of my non-stop technical difficulties (power, internet, wires coming unplugged, constant Windows reboots, VMs being a pain in the butt).

This month marks the 20th anniversary of the Beer Bottle Collection (not of Brewpalace.com though - that came later). It all began with a business trip to Antwerp, Belgium in April of 1994. That's when I began to learn and appreciate Belgian beer. On my return trip in August, I came prepared with a huge suitcase. After stuffing a few dozen bottles in it for the return trip, each bottle I finished at home went up on the kitchen cabinets to show them off. Remember, Belgian beer was pretty much unknown in the US back then, so these were pretty exotic. The rest is history.

Brewpalace.com has been down for a few weeks but looks like I have most of it up and running now. Had some hardware problems and had to re-install the OS a few times. After that I was dreading getting IIS working again, but turned out to be easier than I recall for some reason. Anyway, still have to get the reporting feature working and the database refresh too. Better hurry as I've had some good beers of late.

I've always found it interesting over the years - a long running battle between Rogue and Sam Adams for who has the most bottles. Since probably the late 90's they have been neck and neck. As it stands now, it's still neck and neck - Sam Adams at 54 and Rogue at 53. Rogue could be tied, but there is no way I'm trying their Rogue Voodoo Doughnut Bacon Maple Ale.
