Originally from Arizona but currently living in the Chicago area. Always on the lookout for whatever beers, Chicago-local or not, find themselves my way.
I would like to get into the beer trading scene as I've only seen good experiences with it and lust after the idea of trying beers that can't make their way up to me.
As with personal interests, I'm a big fan of heavy metal music, as I host a metal radio show at WNUR 89.3 FM and try to include myself in the Chicago metal concert scene as often as I can. Along with jazz, rock, and a variety of other genres, I always enjoy getting into music conversations/recommendations.
Favorite styles include IPAs (especially black), most german ale styles, barleywines, imperial stouts, bocks, & lambics. Barrel-aged beers always welcome as well.
Least favorite styles include: pilseners, oatmeal stouts, and coffee-heavy stouts/brown ales
