If you have followed my journeys, you probably know that my wife and I are back living in Milwaukee, which is where we moved to prior to her working as a travel nurse. And if you go back to my early articles, some of them were discussing the numerous breweries here in my city. Of course, during the year we were living in other places around the country, many new breweries sprung up! While we do not boast the sheer numbers of places like San…

I think there’s a problem with my kitchen cupboard; each time I open it there seems to be another beer glass in it. Or that’s what I like to think is happening but, in truth, I can’t stop buying them and you seem to pick them up everywhere these days. Originally only having the top shelf in said cupboard, my glasses are now slowly starting to take over the shelf below and the cupboard top itself. This is starting to sound like the beer in…

I have definitely missed sharing my explorations with everyone, and am glad to finally be back! While there are so many places I would enjoy highlighting, for this article I am going back to…

Guardian Brewing Company, Saugatuck, MI Tom Ayres from Sommbeer brings to us the story of two women and how they started a brewery. The Craft Beer scene is pretty wonderful. The quality beer, the tight ties to the local community, not to mention the entrepreneur spirit all make for a pretty terrific scene.  But if there’s one area that needs improvement, it would be that it’s not as diverse as it could be. Women seem to be underrepresented as brewers and as owners. Despite women…

A Paradigm for This Craft Beer Drinker Paradigm: A typical or pattern of something; a model Most people don’t think of themselves in a paradigm, in their life. There are too many sub-categories existing in which one’s entire life can be pictured into a confluence of overlapping circles. A Venn diagram, if you will. On the other hand, taking a slimmed down look at a part of my life as a craft beer drinker, I believe I can put that aspect of my life into…

How I converted a mini-fridge into an affordable Beer fridge for brews on-tap at my home bar. The whole thing started because I wanted to enjoy homebrew on tap in my garage. I was getting tired of that medium range class of beer I call “garage brew”. What could be better than a pint of home brew with the boys in the garage? So I dusted off my old home brew equipment, but it had been years since I used it. Most of the equipment…

Exploring just what makes some breweries innovate while others stagnate Winemakers for centuries have known that a “stressed vine makes good wine”.  Too much comfort (lots of water, good soil, moderate temperature) and the grape vine will focus on making big green leaves, long branches or extensive roots.  Grape plants need just a bit too much heat or limited water for the plant’s resources to be diverted to the grape.
