Many have called me a beer snob, though not as much anymore. I was not always this way but after countless oz of the same swill I decided that had to be something better out there (this being the mid 2000’s), “there” was a relatively barren place. But, I sought out like-minded people. And slowly began turning my friends and loved ones to the craft beer ways. I’ve tried my hand at home brewing, some good, some real bad. But, the main thing is I enjoyed all of it. Since I have ran out of friends to convert, I figure why not share that love via Podcast. Hope you enjoy the show, and if not hope you enjoyed the beer.

I like IPA’s. That is all.
