  • About

    Sep 25, 1981 (Age: 34)
    Long-time beer lover even before I started reviewing beer (2007). I was around when Rock Art still sold their beer in growlers, Magic Hat had a decent holiday release in proper bottles and The Alchemist was still a brewpub. My first beer ever though was a Labatt Blue when I was 18. Lame, right? Spent the next two years after that drinking Labatt Blue before I found Magic Hat, Rock Art, Long Trail and Otter Creek. Started reviewing beer in 2007 when I was just about to finish my AA at CCV. Been reviewing since. Don't let my reviews affect your opinions of the beer I review. Check it out for yourself. One man's opinion is not the be all, end all.

    All my gratitude goes to John Kimmich, Shaun Hill and Greg Noonan. I would do anything for first two and I'm forever grateful to Greg for turning me onto the wonderful beers of the VT Pub and Brewery and the time I met him at the VT Brewers Festival when I worked as a volunteer many moons ago.

    I love BA, having attended the Extreme Beer Fest in Boston back in 2011. I had a subscription as well, will renew soon. I love beer and will drink anything once, even if I claim to hate it on here. ;-)
