Craft Beer Love



Thanks for “Hoppin” in…come with me on my adventure through the wonderful world of craft beer. In these pages you will find information about styles, brands, breweries, food pairing, and I will even be throwing in my personal reviews so please if you have a brew for me to try drop a comment anytime.

Beer Tasting

First I would like to give you a little bit more information on craft beer itself.  To start with what is a craft beer? This is beer that is not brewed by one of the huge  “mega brewery’s” it is a beer that is made on a smaller scale usually by an independent brewer who was formally known to make “microbrew.” Call it what you will but I like to refer to it as liquid gold.

In doing research I have learned many exciting things. Art and science play the biggest role in brewing the perfect beer, and each brewer has their own flair on what they want you to experience with each sip.  Each batch is methodically and mathematically put together to bring us this amazing beverage. I have witnessed a few batches being prepared myself each step taken at precisely the correct time.

If you haven’t seen it done in action you should really check it out. How to get the color just right, if it should be sour or sweet, will the hops hit you right up front or linger on at the end, should it be heavy or light, fruity or nutty…these are all important questions before they even start a batch.

This is where the best part comes in….the taste test. There are so many left to try and am hoping this site will let us all share what and where we have experienced this wonderful creation.

    Beer, yes please!! I look forward to joining you on this journey. Beer is wonderful. Unfortunately, I’m not very picky and will drink anything. 😉
    I would greatly appreciate some lessons on liquid gold!
    Cheers, Tomeika.

    Wow, you know I never thought about beer this way. I always thought that it’s something to drink with friends. Like, intuitively beer was something to drink to have fun, but not to actually enjoy the taste.
    And over the years I started to notice that beer can actually be tasty. Crafted beer is a whole new world for me though, and I will bookmark your website as it will develop. I am interested!

      Thanks so much for popping in. It took me awhile to discover the true amazement of craft beer, but now that I have I can’t even drink a domestic beer lol it just tastes wrong. Thanks again and stay tuned hopefully I can get you hooked just as I am.

      Cheers 🙂

    Beer! Yes, now we’re talking 🙂 I’ve been a fan of american ‘micro brews’ for quite a number of years and in particular I’m a big fan of IPA’s. Very happy to see that Goose Island is now available here in the UK as that was my first introduction to good American beers while I was in Chicago.
    Are they still classed a micro brewery? Anyhow, great site and i shall certainly be spending time here, could very well be my new local!

      Thanks so much…I love that there are so many people that share my passion. IPA’s all the way for sure. As far as I know Goose Island is no longer classed as a micro brewery, they were bought by a larger company. I hope you visit regularly. Again Thanks for Hoppin in.
