I wanted to quick introduce myself as the newest blogger at HereForTheBeer.com. Tim and Amy presented me with this fantastic opportunity to write to a larger audience and I couldn’t be more excited.
I live in the great state of Wisconsin so I will bring a Midwestern prospective to the site. We have great access to many of the Colorado and West Coast breweries, but I must say some of my favorite breweries are right across the lake in Michigan. I enjoy doing blinded taste offs of different beers so you can judge them without bias. I even hold an annual event where we do this is on a larger stage. I also homebrew with a couple of buddies and we call ourselves Third Tier Brewing, so you will probably hear about some of our shenanigans.
Writing about beer is particularly enjoyable because it allows me to engage in conversations and meet people I might not have had the opportunity to otherwise. I feel strongly about my opinions, but am far from married to them. I encourage everyone to question, criticize, or even curse at me as long as you plan on standing behind your opinions and having a discussion with me. That is the whole reason I started writing about beer in the first place. So please post your comments on the website or hit me up on Twitterverse under @jagatelife.
Please let me know if you have any suggestions on beers I should try, other than Whetstone Station of course! I hope you enjoy and I look forward to hearing from all of you.
