  • I've always had a really deep love of beer. I bought the Complete Joy of Homebrewing for 3.50 at a garage sale when I was 23 and read it cover to cover. Originally, I only wanted to understand beer better as a drinker and consumer. As I read and researched more I realized its something that I had to do. Saved some money, trolled craigslist and my local homebrew shops for supplies and know how. Before I knew it, I was pouring a glass of my own extract brew!rnrnI used to brew at night when there's no girlfriend to get in the way. Now I brew in the daytime with a loving wife and good friends. I brew almost all styles, but my focus tends to fit lager brewing, English session beers, adjunct lagers, modest Belgian beers and trusty American hoppy ales.
  • Flanders Red...some time.
  • Session ales generally include; ordinary bitter, Scottish 70/-, mild, cream ale, Stan Hieronymous' patersbier, dry stout, witbierrnrnThen I generally step up to something like jamil's evil twin, Belgian triple, robust porter, Belgian blonde, IPA, Janets brown
  • Rarely used for meads and ciders
  • Commercial beers, I love lagunitas seasonals, everything from snoqualmie (, ayinger lagers (especially jahrhundert), a couple of sours and some mishmash old beers
  • There's always a British pub beer of some sort on tap, then usually dry cider, Helles lager, an American hoppy beer. Peppered with Belgian ales and silly experiment beers.

    Columbia SC only offers a few. River Rat brewery has a cool little tap room, but it seems
    they've spent most of their money on decorative stainless steel instead of hiring a competent
    brewer. On the o...

    This beer was made for Oktoberfest 2016 in lovely NoDa, Charlotte, NC. It's a minor twist on
    the export lager style using oats for flavor stability, which worked like a charm. The first
    bit of beer fr...
