Ideal Day: Work hard until evening, enjoy a good dinner, pour a good glass of beer, kick back to watch some sports with my Golden Retriever and my beautiful wife nearby!
As of December 2012 - starting to ’slowly’ work through a serious backlog of ratings - probably have about 500 from various fests, tastings, etc. that have been sitting around - maybe, just maybe...5-6 at a time, I can get caught up!
Other than Impy Stouts, I’m a big fan of Witbiers (love to try any locals) and good Hefeweizens - have become quite enamored with Berliners over the past few years as well...no qualms with a sour either...how about I cut to the chase - aside from most smoked beers, I like beer!
I’m always in search of ’weather related’ beers (except the infamous malt liquor Hurricane). I’m a meteorologist (at least my degrees say so) and I’m into collecting bottles, so any labels that are weather inspired would be awesome!
