The Big Question – Why?

[INTRO: AC/DC – Thunderstruck]

Here you are reading yet another post on a blog that seems to only somewhat talk about craft beer reviews, news, pubs, homebrewing, barley, hops, yeast, water, food, and the list goes on… and on. And you wonder to yourself, why in John Palmer’s name is there yet another person writing about beer and everything relating to the fermented beverage!? My short answer – why not?

I personally do not think you can have too many articles about beer. Think of the greats in the beer world – the Calagiones, the Kochs, the Palmers, the Papazians, and all those who have paved the way for the rest of us – even they do not know 100% of the information that’s available currently. So why not add to the vastness of pages that   concern everyone’s favorite refreshment? Think of it as an open source library of information to feed your soul and your pint glass. The more people learning and understanding, the better beer will get.

So who am I? Let’s start with who I am not. I am not a professional blogger, journalist, or author. I am not the perfect writer (reference the many grammar, punctuation, and spelling errors that are likely in this post, and many more to come). I am not even in the craft beer industry. My name is Conrad. I am just a God-fearing, homebrewing man from California who loves my family, friends, America, and all things BEER.

What can you expect from future posts? My thoughts on beer articles and books I’ve read, thoughts on brewing and beer TV and radio shows I’ve watched or listened to, pubs I’ve visited, beers I’ve tasted, and the occasional brewing notes from my own kettles and carboys. You won’t get a lot of scientific information here – and I can’t even guarantee that much of what I write will be accurate. If I’m wrong, teach me – comment, email, Facebook stalk – just let me know. And if I’m not, then relax and have a home brew.

In the end, I hope at least one of us can learn something. Or one of us can have some beer time at work without showing up drunk to talk to the boss. And if you’re still with me, welcome to the journey that is Beer. Don’t worry, this is probably the longest post that will ever be written. I hope you enjoy.
