Beers I Have Had

This is a list of beers I have tried; the list, up to number 43, is in no particular order, but after that, it is in the order in which I tried the beers. It is like this because one day my friend asked me how many kinds beer I had had, so I had to make a list, and I came up with 43, and they are just in the order that I remembered them, and after that, I added to the list each time I tried a new beer.

In addition to just the list, I am including the country in which each beer is brewed, along with a star-based rating system which goes *=Insipid **=Uninteresting ***=Tolerable ****=Pleasureful *****=Superlative. A fraction after a star or stars indicates a fraction of a star in addition to the stars before it; a fraction with a star after it indicates only a fraction of a star. Since my favourite beer website, The Beer Advocate, lists both mead and cider, I will do the same in my list. Of course, they will be labeled as mead and cider, so as not to be mistaken for beer. I have also created a new list of Whiskies I Have Had.
