    My favorite beers are by far those that represent all of the ingredients in the most articulated, yet satisfying way possible. I am always open to the novel and the new, and am a hardcore fan of creativity and passion that goes into beer-making. I currently aim to rate to a "3" average, but I am also very generous with scores due to my love for all things beer-related. I tend to seek out beers that are worth my time and money as well, so it may be a reason so many of my scores may seem quite high at times!

    Top beer styles: Saisons, sours (especially oude gueuzes), Imperial/Double IPAs, Imperial/Double Stouts, barrel-aged beers, dry-hopped ales of all kinds, and a longterm loving relationship with all beer styles from Belgium, as well as lagers and hefeweizens from Bavaria and Western Germany.

    Almanac Brewing Co.
    Crooked Stave
