There, I admitted it...
I moved to Beervana (Portland, OR) over 10 years ago, from Illinois--a land where "good" beer goes by the name of Miller Lite or Bud Lite. Needless to say, I didn't drink much of either. After moving to Portland, I realized what all the fuss was about--good beer is worth drinking! Imagine that. In a moment eerily similar to one from Gone with the Wind, I vowed "As God as my witness, I'll never drink crappy beer again!" And I didn't...until I went to my friend's wedding in St. Louis last November--but I digress.
Anyway, I recently decided to try homebrewing after contemplating it for a over a decade. While researching different styles and all things beer on the web, I found that I really enjoyed learning about the many aspects of beer and brewing. In a quest to find beer styles that Latha (my wife) and I both like, we have been sampling (for pure research purposes only), many different styles of beer. So I figured I might as well keep a record of them.
Anyway, I enjoy learning more about this subject, and maybe you'll learn a thing or two! That's assuming anyone other than my wife and mom read this. So if nothing else, at least I'll have a nice record of the beers we sampled. Cheers!
