  • About

    Apr 20, 1979 (Age: 37)
    Been a part of the BA community for 8 or 9 years, and have learned so much from the site.

    Gained an appreciation for beer in Germany for the first five years of my adult life, then I moved to Florida. I had a hard time adapting to the American Macro beers, and sought out what beers I enjoyed in Germany. I found some offerings, but after a while of going to specialty stores to get my German beer fix, I noticed the fancy beer packaging of the microbrewers. I found them exotic.

    I decided to try my first American Micro Brew, and it was Anchor Liberty Ale. Afterwards, I was hooked. I started trying the different beers, not knowing the difference between on or the other, other than taste, aroma, and appearance. I eventually typed "beer club" or something like that into Google search, and found this website and became a member. After becoming a member, I traveled all over the world and was able to appreciate what the different cultures had to offer.

    After living abroad for three years since becoming a member, I returned to an outstanding beer influenced community in the St. Louis metro area. I've been here for two years and I'm ready to do some more world touring again!
