Default Hello From Massachusetts !

Hi All,

I have been trolling around this board for a long time and figured I should start to contribute something. I have been a home brewer for almost 12 years now. I made the switch to all grain about 4 years ago. I love Pales and IPAs. I live about 50 west of Boston, not in a big city at all. I am in the military and plan to retire in about 4 years and open a brewery in Florida. I have a few recipes that are on tap at a local brewery. Hope to hear for you all soon.

Kris

Welcome Kris from Central MA Kris! That sounds like an amazing plan. Florida and beer? One of the better combinations I have heard.

You'll get the best advice out there from this forum.

Florida needs a few good new england style micro brew pubs, at least it did the last time I was there. It was disappointing to not be able to locate a keg of good beer for my friends wedding a few years back. Every bar I visited was either too "southern" or too "airport" like for my liking. That was a while ago, maybe things have changed or I just didn't know where to look. Good luck man and thank you for serving our country!

I'm looking around the St. Pete's area...but I'm open to new places, just no more shoveling snow!

Welcome.

The Ft. Myers area is nice and in desperate need of good beer ( or it was a couple years ago when I was down visiting the father-in-law ). Besides, you'll be close to Red Sox spring training.

I agree whole heartedly, us sox fans need a taste of home while down there. Build it here and you'll kill it!
