About Me

My name is Brian and I am 27 years old. I grew up in a small town in Vermont. I spent most of my life there, until I decided to join the Marine Corps after high school. I spent five years in the Marine Corps. While in the Marines, I was able to travel the world, go to war , and pick up on an occupation that lead me to my career now. The traveling part sparked my interest in many different cultures, foods and drinks. In a way it helped create my idea of this  blog.

I’m currently living in a Southern California city called Corona. This is significant because Southern California has so many different breweries and different types of beers that will be mentioned in this blog. I am married to the love of my life and we have two wonderful children together. We have  girl that is about to be 6 and a boy that just turned one.  I could not have asked for a better life than the one that I was given.

Over the past 5 years I have enjoyed many different alcoholic beverages and found that beer is my favorite. I have tried many throughout the years and would like to share my knowledge and thoughts on those beers with you( my audience). I know a lot of people have one or two beers that they normally drink and that’s it.  I used to be the same way, and then one day I decided to try a different kind and I liked it a lot. That experience really opened up my eyes and thus my journey began.  I hope to do the same for everyone that reads this blog. I would like to spark your interest and lead you to a great beer that you might want to try.

Trying out new beers is not something that I do for fun but more like a research project. I say that because in the near future I want to start brewing my own beer and put my knowledge of beer to use in order to great a future Gold Medal Beer.

  1. I’m always looking for beer recommendations! Thanks for following my blog “Sweet Spell Bakeshop” =)

    Hi Brian, you’re getting a nice site going here. I’m more of a “wino,” but I have absolutely nothing against a great beer! Thank you for stopping by my site — good to have you!

  3. I like your blog- we also love to try new beers and look forward to reading your recommendations. I didn’t see an RSS link- could you add one to your site? Thanks!

    How do you think micro brews on the west coast compare to those back here in New England?

    • Haha dude I haven’t really had a microbrew from new england. The last time I went back was way before I really started trying new beers, do you have any recommendations, they might have it out here.

        haha I had forgotten how long it had been since you were back here. Alot of what I like has alot to do with the seasons. A company may have a winter brew that I enjoy but their spring beer wouldn’t be at the top of my list. overall though you can’t go wrong with a beer from Sam Addams. Long Trail and Magic Hat are breweries out of Vermont, Smuttynose and Shipyard are from NH and ME. They all make seasonal specific beers

  5. Thanks so much for the follow! Interesting blog … I’m going to read more! I grew up in a small town in Vermont as well – Andover, Vermont – the south eastern part of the state – small world indeed!

    Hi Brian! Wow… I’ve just been reading through your previous posts and you’ve put a hell of a lot of effort into your blog. You write really well and your tasting notes are fantastically descriptive. You must have a great palate 🙂 I’ve only just started getting into appreciating craft and boutique beers. I was previously more of a cider drinker (I still like both cider and wine… particularly red wine!) but there are some amazing beers out there. I’ve hardly tasted American beer though… most of the liquor stores here in Australia seem to import Budweiser but other than that we mostly get our local brews and some European/English imports. Have you tasted many Australian beers? I’m going to enjoy reading your recommendations…. I’ll see if I can track down some of the labels you’ve mentioned.
