Toasting to the new year with a new beer -- every day

Posted: Updated:
LAKELAND (FOX 13) -

New Year's resolutions don't have to hurt. As a matter of fact, a Lakeland guy has found a way to make his a hoot.

"So many people make New Year's resolutions that aren't fun," Nicholas Cottrell told FOX 13 on Tuesday. "It's not fun to stop smoking. It's not fun to lose weight. It is fun to drink beer."

So that's what Cottrell is doing. He has made a commitment to drink a different craft beer every day throughout 2013. Then he blogs about it on the site, newbeereveryday.com.

Craft beers are made at microbreweries, which gives the brewmaster a lot of latitude to experiment. There are hundreds of different brands and flavors. One type is made from chili peppers. Another from cucumbers. A third from the flower heather.

Cottrell admits he is no pro at sizing up suds.

"One thing I make clear on the blog is that I make no claim to authority," he said. "I just like beer."

What better way to prove it than like this?
