Part of the reason for my absence in writing for awhile was because I was writing for work. A lot of the content I write about for work and here on my own site is driven by my interactions giving tours and talking with the public about beer. Someday I may seek permission to re-post these and take the time to collect more of my own photo content, but for now here’s some links to those articles.
Dissecting 3 Favorite Hop Varieties – This came about after hearing a lot of folks say that “all IPA tastes the same.” Much of my writing at work revolves around IPA and hoppy beers because that’s about 80% of what we produce, but if it weren’t apparent by my own personal writings, I friggin’ love the stuff.
Demystifying Hops and Bitterness aka “What Does Hoppy Really Mean?” – More hop breakdown explored here. As above, these type of questions come up a lot, even more often when I’m behind the bar. It’s fun to break things down in different ways, and was cool to see how we approach answering them differently than other breweries.
Summer Drinking: How to Keep Your Beer Fresh – A positive, somewhat lighthearted look at something I’m usually swearing about – not baking your beer.
Why We Still Homebrew – This is probably a topic I’ll revisit again in way more depth on this site, but was a fun chance to get some feedback from our brewers.
