So I've started a blog! Looking to work on my writing skills and rant a bit. It'll be on, you guessed it. Beer! Also my other hobbies bbq, cigars, camping, general man nonsense.

Drop by post a comment. Hell I'm looking to learn something so your input is appreciated!

Cheers

"Now I’m a beer snob. Let me explain what that means to me. It means I would rather forego a pint then drink something I won’t enjoy, or is new to me."

"The key is to try something new. Next time you’re looking down the aisle with all those gleaming bottles and cans, try something new."


Well, which one is it?

i'm gonna be blunt:

this is the worst thing i've ever read.

the assholiness is dripping from every single word. not to mention pretentiousness at a level I've never seen before.

all this mixed with random f-bombs.

disgusting.

Dont know if its the worst thing I have ever read. Actually definitely not. But I have to agree, it was pretty pretentious and the cussing was unnecessary.

Do you consider yourself a beer snob, or a beer geek? They are different and I am definitely in the later group, at least for the most part. Snobbery turns people away.

Bah beer snob has been my thing... But I'm trying to get past it... Haha I've been a bit of a jackass (unintentionally) with my snootiness. So I'm going to be trying to work on it and my communication skills with this. Basically gotta be a bit less of a jackass and a bit more supportive. I'm also working on the whole swearing thing... With a son in the house I've had to start watching my tongue, I'm going to edit out the posts for cursing. It's amazing what I'll get down in a pinch.

So in point the blog stuff is going to be more of a learning thing for me. Hopefully ill see a progression of skill and less a-holiness moving down the line!

Cheers!

That error is still in there...

My advice: Please, don't give up your day job, and keep brewing.
Otherwise, it is great to be able to express your opinion and thoughts to the world. That's what blogs are for.

Trivia question:
What does "blog" stand for? Now don't look it up.... Do you really know it?
