No reason, really.
Well, that’s not completely true. According to the Brewers Association (this info changes constantly; today is 7/16/2012) there are now over 2,126 breweries open and another 1,300 in planning! I love it, I really do. The more, the merrier. But man, it is a hard road to go down as a business owner. I’ve been involved in the craft beer industry for 17 years now. And I’ve learned a lot; most of it the hard way. Maybe some of that knowledge and experience can assist the new breweries that are now opening. I sincerely hope so.
Additionally, I am a huge beer fan. So I’m going to write about beer. But it won’t always be about the beer business. It may be about the new beer I just tried. It may be about the beer I drank while on my last hiking trip or after my last big run. The point is the postings will be varied and reflect my interests, which are all over the board. But someway, somehow, it will always come back to beer. Even if beer is just on the periphery.
So read these posts if you wish. Comment if you feel like it. I love to have lots of conversations about beer. If you don’t like what I write then no biggie; it’s not going to hurt my feelings. These are my experiences and my take-aways. Yours will be different. And for me, that is what makes beer so much fun.
