I want to learn to brew beer and I want to expand my palate and sample what the world of craft brewing has to offer. This is that and the community parts are so others can share their thoughts, suggestions, experiences, and otherwise engage with me and other people. As this site grows and as (hopefully) people partake in my web offering, perhaps what I intend for this site will evolve as well.

For now, I’ll keep it simple. Welcome and please join me on my journey – share yours too!
