About Me

My first beer was a Schlitz. I still remember my brother’s friend sneaking me a can during a party of his back in high school. I had no idea what to do with it. I think I put it in my closet for a few days and then tried it warm. Obviously, this first beer was not at all enjoyable and it took me a while longer to grow a true appreciation for beer.

I discovered good beer with the help of those wonderful hippies slinging Fat Tire, Samuel Smith, Redhook and other good beers in the parking lots at Phish concerts back in the 90′s. While attending college in Lafayette, IN., the only local brewpub became our favorite hangout. We even started trying to make our own beer before we were legally allowed to drink; the results ranged from wonderful to undrinkable. I studied abroad in the Netherlands, and I did an internship in the Czech Republic. Both countries provided me with an abundance of amazing beer to appreciate.

When I moved from Chicago to Seattle in 2005, I’ll admit that the decision was at least partly based on the quality of beer in the great Northwest. I have not been disappointed.

While my days are spent as a financial analyst in corporate America, I enjoy my nights and weekends with good beer and good company.

My goal in writing is to open up the world of beer to the greater public, and to learn as much as possible along the way.

Na zdraví, Proost, Prost, Santé, Salud and Cheers!

    Hello. I like beer. I demonstrate this as much as possible.

    The Hop in the Dark is absolutely the best Ale I’ve every had. We travel around the country, and as time permits, stop at various micro-breweries. That is absolutely the best yet.

    skol, you forgot to add the Norwegian “skol” in your foreign language toasts. Can’t believe that slipped by Sig, f/v Northwestern. They don’t get much more Norwegian than that boat

    How about the Irish “Slainte” toast? Very classy addition to a warm Schlitz or even a cold draught Hamms on a hot nite. Be sure to always look the other person in the eyes when toasting as well… ;)

    Your link list does not include NW Peaks brewery, Lonesome Fir or Ballard Urban Family Public House. I didn’t see Epic Ales on there. Thanks! BTW I recommend your site all the time …
