Taking a short break from beer drinking to celebrate Mother’s Day with the lovely Mrs. Asshole (she’s technically a mother-to-be right now, but fuck it, she’s close enough). Plenty of brunch-cooking and general pampering in my future today. Don’t worry, you degenerates, I’m sure I’ll get back to the hops & barley tomorrow.
Alright fine, I’ll say it: I have a borderline-unhealthy obsession with beer. I travel far and wide to find it, I trade it, I spend waaaay too much money on it, I talk and read about it, now I write about it, and of course I drink a metric shitload of it.
I set this site up not so much to put yet another beer blog/review site out there, but more to give me a place where I can record what I’ve drunk and maybe what I was doing/thinking at the time, and also to share that crap with a few friends. That may just be it; we’ll have to see where it goes. But you can expect it to be characterized by half-assed writing, lame and inappropriate humor, and absolutely terrible photography.
A lot of this site is written in a sort of beer-trading shorthand at times, so unless you’re up to speed on that particular obsession it may not always make sense to you. Feel free to ask questions or tell me how much of an idiot I am if you like. But whether you’re a beer trader/collector/hoarder, a friend, or just really interested in the minutiae of beer, if you decide to waste a little of your time here, then welcome.
