I’d like to welcome you to BeerSpeculator through this obligatory first blog post! I’ve been enjoying craft brew for quite some time now and almost enjoy discussing the subject matter as much as quaffing it (almost…). In this blog, I will be reviewing 1-3 beers a week in a borderline stream of consciousness manner. Subtext: I will be drinking these beers as I’m writing about them, so please excuse any misspellings or off-topic ramblings. To keep things relevant and focused, I will be adding a more traditional style review into each post…somewhere…
My personal preference tends to lean toward the paler of the ales. I find assaulting the palate with hops particularly pleasing, so I gravitate toward the IPAs, imperial IPAs, double IPAs (possibly the same thing?), triple IPAs, and however many other multipliers of the IPA there may be. Nevertheless, I do enjoy all styles and will be commenting on all styles in this blog.
Other topics of interest that may make their way into a post include food, music, video games, and/or sports. More often than not, food will be the subject making a guest appearance as my secondary passion is eating (who would have guessed?). Let’s get real, who doesn’t like using alcohol/food pairings as an excuse to bust out some brewskis!?! Plus, cooking is my “jam.”
Alright! Let’s get started!
