    I just wanted to say hello. I'm a new member and hope to be very active. I didn't see a spot for new members to introduce themselves, so I'm doing it here. Might be cool to have a spot for such introductions. I'm in Virginia and love all things beer. Cheers

    A beginner's thread or just some stickies would probably be a good idea actually. Cheers and merry xmas!

    'thread' was the terminology that was eluding me
  6. I haven't even figured out how to start a thread yet! Merry Christmas!!

    Welcome aboard! I agree that it would be good to have a beginner's thread. I have been a member for a number of years and really only withing the last year started posting and finally figured out how to post pics within the last 2 months or so. Overall, this is a great place to learn a lot about all things related to beer. Cheers!
  11. Welcome to the show my friend. If you haven't seen the sworn blood oath section, I would definitely check it out. My only word of advice is take some things on this site with a grain of salt. Other than that, enjoy! This place is really boss and awesome to be a part of. Cheers!

    I'd be all for an entire "beginners" FAQ section for each region with various breweries in each state... just to cut down on the "Where to find Pliny the Younger in Texas"-type threads and confusion.

    I am another noob here, and can't wait to really get going. I am currently living in Belgium and enjoying all the beers this country has to offer. Though I can't wait to get back Stateside and start finding some more of these great beers.

    Welcome rvajohn...... It's a great place and I've made many friends here through trading, beer tasting and events. Feel free to ask your questions and just ignore the snarky replies... You'll definitely get the answers you seek. Reading the forums and reviews of beers is a wonderful way to explan your horizon. One word of caution, despite the enthusiasm of every new member, you will not have the opportunity to drink every highly prized beer in the next six months. Don't frustrate yourself trying. It's the journey that's the most fun... not a mythical destination... Cheers and welcome!!

    Welcome aboard! I assume RVA stands for Richmond, VA?

    Hello. I am also a long time lurker, first time poster. Still waiting to figure out how long it takes to get new threads approved or to earn enough cred that they don't have to be?

    Welcome. Most noobs start out by posting ridiculous trade offers or saying something like, "Pliny the Elder sucks" so you're already good in my book.

    Hey everyone! I'm not new to the site really but just starting to post and hopefully get some of my reviews up soon. I'm a huge craft beer enthusiast and run a beer and wine shop in Columbus, OH. I'm looking forward to meeting some new people and talking about all things beer :].
