A blog about beer, life, making decisions, learning to write, and whatever else comes from my “gut”.I am traveling man located in Northern Virginia AKA NOVA.  I’ve been working in D.C. for the past 5 years, phew, seems like a lifetime. Yep, that happy face above finally hit YELP ELITE this year, yippee!

Did the 90’s in the U.S. Army (13B) as an Enlisted guy both Active and Guard (Intel). weed-burn

(1997,Me on the left burning marijuana fields in college; um, I was always hungry for some reason).

In 2005, I was recalled for Operation Iraqi Freedom for 18 months.  For several years after the war, I worked in Philly and never experienced the craft brew it produced. Why? I was OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAstuck on mass produced beers like Guinness or Yuengling. Don’t get me wrong I love a good Guinness still, but nothing compares to the taste of a flavorsome craft beer.

Why the site….I’ve been around a couple blocks and figured why not try and speak my mind; i.e. maybe shine some light and help others. In the meantime…BEER!
