My name is Al, and I like beer.
I'm just your average guy who happens to have a deep love of beer and brewing. I hail originally from the beer loving state of Michigan and after three years of beer heaven in Philly I am back in the mitten enjoying more than my fair share of Short's, Bell's and Founders.

This is a space for me to share beer news, beer reviews and stories about my various adventures in homebrewing and the pursuit of delicious beers.

Cheers!

Paste's Top New Beers of 2010 →

I had never even heard of paste magazine, but all the breweries I follow through social media kept posting this article so I figured I would pass it along. It is actually a pretty good list and a few of the entries like Back in Black, Gubna and Tumbler are beers that would be in the running for my favorite new beer from 2010.

Men's Journal 25 Best Beers in the World →

I am not sure what exactly qualifies Men’s Journal to proclaim these beers the best in the world, but lists like this always interest me.

I think it is a positive sign that quite a few of the beers on this list are indeed widely accepted as world class. Also, almost all of them are indeed quality brews.

I can remember just a couple years ago reading an article from one of the other men’s magazines, and it had DFH 90 minute alongside the likes of Heineken and Blue Moon. It is always nice to see craft beer well represented in a main stream publication.

Video

This takes off where the I am a Craft Brewer video left off. It is a bit cheesy, and not quite as good as the first video, but still worth watching if you love craft beer.

Also, Dr. Bill is the man.
