Continuing the thread I started here at: The Beer Thrillers - New Beer, Homebrewing, Hop Growing, Blog

But since we now have a new domain, a better host, and a lot more features, I've decided to start a new thread.

The Beer Thrillers is a blog I started in May 2019. We are (as of December 2020-January 2021) averaging about 7K+ a month, and are ranked #9 on FeedSpot's Top 100 Beer Blogs. Myself, J. Doncevic, A. Parys, Default Brewing, and K. Larsen write for the blog. We cover everything from news, beer reviews, brewery reviews, opinion pieces, canning experience, travelogues, home brewing articles, brewer interviews, beer education series, hop growing and maintenance, and much more.

So please check us out and give a follow or bookmark. We currently have 300+ articles, and write a new post about every 2-4 days. So there is plenty to read and to see.

Cheers!

-B. Kline

Looked at the Blog.....and lost interest pretty fast. Lots of stuff about commercial breweries, not very much that has anything to do with home brewing. I suppose reading about commercial brewery news/reviews just isn't my thing. Thanks for posting though, I'll check back.

There is some stuff about both. You are right most of it is heavy commercial brewing. But, we will be posting more about hop growing this upcoming season, and I am looking to get back into homebrewing more, so there should be more on that aspect.

I would highly recommend Karl Larson's article on keptinis though:

Karl is hopefully going to be writing some more articles in the future. He is super crazy busy (two jobs, ex-marine, pit bull volunteer, home brewer, BJCP, and part time brewer for a brewery).

I know its been a hot minute since I posted here, but we have been posting a lot at the blog though.

Right now, since its March 1st, that means its time for the annual March Madness. This year's Battle of the Breweries is pitting 128 breweries from several states against each other to see who can be crowned champ.

You can head here for the background, rules, and why and which breweries were selected. This page also has the links to the voting pages:

Throwback to this great article written for our blog about Traditional Lithuanian Keptinis:

In honor of it being National Homebrew today, lets take a look back (2 years ago) to when Karl Larsen wrote this fantastic piece for us:

Breaking news this morning - unfortunately there has been a fire at Funk Brewing Company in Elizabethtown, PA.
Our thoughts are with all involved and hope for good updates.

Haven't been posting all of the articles we've been publishing, but we certainly have been publishing a lot. Here's our interview with the head brewer from Logyard Brewing - Sean Gorzynski:

Haven't been posting all of the articles we've been publishing, but we certainly have been publishing a lot. Here's our interview with the head brewer from Logyard Brewing - Sean Gorzynski:

Hey if you guys ever need/want a guest writer I'd like to throw my name in the hat. Here's my CV:
  • I've been brewing since 2008 (15 years)
  • I have a bachelors degree in creative writing
  • I'm a BJCP certified judge
  • I work in the nuclear industry and have a strong technical and scientific background and can cross between technical and creative well.
  • I write technical papers routinely for work
  • I travel all over the world for work. In the past 12 months I've been in:
    • Tunisia
    • Scotland
    • South Africa
    • Colombia
    • Brazil
    • Wales
    • India
And I tried beer in each of these countries from local establishments whenever possible
  • I've previously written a couple articles for HBT, as well as homebrew supply (which has since been purchased by MoreBeer)
  • Long ago, I briefly had my own blog The Ask-O-Matic which is still lurking in the cobwebs of the internet. I did random research questions, hiking gear advice, and homebrewing articles. I'd enjoy writing an article here and there again.
If not, no worries, I'll enjoy the content y'all are creating.

Thanks!
