I have a reputation among my friends for being sort of a know-it-all.  It’s mostly random, useless knowledge which makes me a useful trivia partner, but it mostly just takes up a lot of extra brain cells that I could be using for, I don’t know, nuclear physics or something more helpful to the world at large (unless you count winning some free beer as being helpful to the world at large.)

Here’s a recap of how we made the most of the route, and some tips on Sasquatch! Music Fest.

Will Travel for Beer

June 12, 2013 |

This summer is busy with travel for me. I live and work in Colorado, but my out of state adventures will have brought me to San Diego, Minneapolis, Maine, Montana, Portland (Oregon), and Seattle by the end of the summer. I do not normally travel this much in one season, but sometimes life just keeps you busy like that. While I don’t look forward to being gone so often, I am looking forward to my new favorite hobby in a new place-drink the local beer.

Awesomesauce- #myfriendsaremarried

May 23, 2013 |

Being the old, married person that I am, my newest Tumblr obsession may seem a bit odd to you, but bear with me.  We are all familiar with the standard GIF Tumblr layout by now, I’m sure (if for some reason you aren’t, go check out this one and this one right now.  We’ll wait until you get back…) Basically, the author gives a scenario, and then presents the reader with a GIF that mirrors their reaction to the situation.  For example, this, this and this.

Editorial: Magic Hat Brewing Company Versus West Sixth Brewery

May 22, 2013 | 6

I originally intended to write an editorial in response to Slate’s post earlier this week about how hoppy beers are ruining craft beer.  They made some valid observations but on the whole their argument boils down to taste.  Hops aren’t ruining craft beer, beer is ruining craft beer, namely people in the industry who don’t abide by beer culture.

Lexington Craft Beer Week Preview

May 16, 2013 |

The Beatles got one thing wrong: happiness is not a warm gun. No, no. Happiness is a week celebrating craft beer in your home town. And by a serendipitous turn of events this one kicks off on the back end of my birthday weekend. So what that really means is that Lexington’s Craft Beer Week coincides with my birthday week (that’s right, we celebrate birthdays for a week round these parts). Read More
