What’s This All About, Anyway?

February 4, 2011 Leave a comment

I am writing this blog for all the homebrewers out there who aim to make brewing their profession. American homebrewing has become huge in the past few decades. Driven by the enthusiasm of those small-batch scientists, craft beer has earned an ever-increasing market share since the 1980’s. There are a lot of brewers out there, young and old, who either dream of or plan on brewing professionally some day. I count myself among them and I hope that this site will become a resource for those budding keepers of the yeast. My plan is to give insight into my own personal experiences working in the brewing industry, along with research and commentary on related issues, book reviews, festival and brewing education reviews, etc. All things beer, all the time.

It would be great if this blog spawned serious discussions with others, but even if it is a solitary exercise I feel it will be useful. This is a place to collect thoughts and lessons learned, and to remind myself of what I still need to know.

Best read with a brew in hand.
