Default America's Coolest Home Brewery built by Chris Bowen of Hammersmith Ales

HammerSmith Ales started in 2005 , the idea for the name Hammersmith was originally inspired after the town outside of London, England. HammerSmith is rich in history and has a few landmarks significant to music, a famous bridge and an important stop along the river Thames. Chris's interest in British culture started many years ago, he has always been a fan of British beer , authors of literature, and British personalities. Early on in my exploration of beer, he quickly discovered breweries like Fuller's, Shepard Naeme, Young's, Samuel Smith and Greene King. When he started brewing, he quickly decided that he was going to focus on British style beers like English Bitters, Extra Special Bitter , India Pale Ale, Old Ale and Barleywine.

It's just spam BS to get us to go to a horribly laid out 'blog' that's covered in advertising links. I trust no one with post counts under 6,922, ya know?

No, it's not that it's spam. It's just since it's mbowenz (Chris's handle on here) it was just strange that someone other than him posted it. And usually spammers have low post count. And it's odd also that a profile created 5 years ago would suddenly pop up posting a thread with a link in it. Just a bunch of seemingly strange things...no offense meant.

It's really cool. Chris is great, he's done some cool things, and contributed much to the body of historical information on our hobby.

Here's him demoing Colonial Brewing.

Chris, what's the latest with the Arctic Ale film? Can it be seen online or anything? I'm dying to see it.
