What I’m About

Posted in General on May 25, 2011 by Steve

What’s going on everyone. I started this blog out of fun and my pure enjoyment of beer. For many years, the ONLY beer I drank was your typical Bud Light, Coors Light, Corona, etc. Sometimes I would venture off and try something different but not very often. Recently, though, a buddy of mine purchased a house. When you buy a house, the first order of business is “man cave”. In his man cave, naturally, there had to be a bar. Me being the design genius that I am thought he should line the ledge of the bar with different beer bottle caps all from different beers, and he agreed with my ingenuity. To help him out, I have started going out and finding different beers with caps he does not have yet, which also allowed me to go beyond my comfort zone and try beers I would never have tried before. After posting a couple of pictures of these beers, my lovely girlfriend joked that I should become a beer critic. And the rest, as they say, is history.

Here’s the thing though; I’m not a beer snob, and I’m certainly not a professional. Which is why I hope this blog gives a little bit of a different feel. I don’t care about IBU’s and all that crazy beer technical talk. The reviews I do will be for the layman, because I am a layman. I’m not going to tell you that the beer has “hints of wheat and soft overtones of honey with the notes of cinnamon that help cleanse the palate”, because frankly, that doesn’t tell me shit, and how the hell does a beer have notes and overtones? I’m gonna keep it simple. Is it good? Is it bad? What does it taste like? That’s why this is the “man’s review of beer”. I’ll tell you how it is, what it tastes like, and if I like it or not. So hopefully I’m able to do this enough to keep everyone interested, and….thanks for stopping by!
