I’ve liked beer from an early age. According to family lore I waddled around in my diaper to finish cans of Budweiser that lay within arm’s reach of a toe-headed toddler. I guess I was just born to drink beer. Writing on the other hand doesn’t come as easy.
I have a day job, which thankfully doesn’t require much writing. Unfortunately it doesn’t involve much beer drinking either. One of the ways I subdue the day-to-day grind of my suburban 9-to-5 life is by engaging with the beer community. Drinking beer, discussing beer, trading beer, waiting in line for beer, making beer, making friends through beer, taking beercations, and now writing — poorly — about beer.
Having homebrewed I appreciate the craftsmanship and creativity of brewing, the science and the art melding together to form beer. I admire the ingenuity and risks brewers take to try something new and different. As new styles come and go. The one thing that I’ve found constant is the sense of community and support within the beer world. I can only hope as we start this endeavor the beer community is supportive of our risk to try something new and different. — Brian aka ‘Wheezy’
