My other hobbies include cycling, camping, fishing, occasionally trying to learn to play guitar. I'm married and we have two teenagers.
I've enjoyed beer since I was of legal drinking age in Ontario. Up until about a year ago I mostly stuck with domestic brands, occasionally having an import here and there, but never really enjoying it as much as my usual domestic brands.
In mid-2013 I expanded my taste in beers and I now wonder what the hell took me so long?
Every new beer is an adventure. I never quite know what to expect until it hits my senses.
I then discovered #beerporn hashtag on Instagram. People post pics of whatever beer they're drinking and tag it with #beerporn. I started taking photos and posting them. There's a whole lot of discovering out there.
A friend at work suggested that I should also write about the beers that I'm discovering.
It is now on its third name, for various reasons. The current name is what I nicknamed my basement, where I used to make home brew. There's a more detailed explanation for it somewhere on this blog. Due to a major life change, it is now in my kitchen in a tiny apartment.
I try to keep my reviews short and sweet. To the point. Perhaps throw in some humour. As I learn more about beers, I'll share that knowledge.
Anyway, I'm done. There's beer to be explored.
