Joined 5 years ago from Ohio




I was born and raised in the Great State of Ohio. I was in the United States Air Force for 20 years and traveled around the world during my enlistment where I met a lot of great people and got to sample a pretty wide range of experiences. I am a food lover and avid beer sampler. I have many other interest including the military, music, guitars, fitness, cooking, and nutrition to name a few!

I have aquired quite a bit of knowledge about beer over the years by reading, attending tastings, and talking with other avid craft beer enthusiast and experts. I have also been an avid homebrewer and learned by reading books by Charlie Papazian and Michael Jackson (no not that Michael Jackson). I was also an active member of a homebrew club while I lived in Germany. Homebrewing really helped me to learn about the different ingredients and their effects, on aroma, appearance, and taste on beer. My extensive travels around the world have also allowed me to sample many different styles at many different localities. I lived three years of my life in Bavaria that should count for something!
