So all my efforts to get into the beer industry finally paid off. I have a full-time job working for a brewery. What this means for the blog is that I cannot post reviews. I know this sucks but it would be a conflict of interest. If one of you is interested in picking up where I left off I would be glad to give you the access to the blog for reviews. Hit me up with an email if you are interested firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for reading everybody! I’m going to miss writing and reviewing beers but I am much happier at my new job which is really what matters.

Heartland Brewing Company will be located in El Dorado. This what I’m talking about Kansas! Good luck to all involved at Heartland Brewing and I look forward to trying your beers someday soon!
Today everybody should grab a beer and toast to the beginning of the end of The Great Experiment. Beer was legal during Prohibition but only what was called “near beer” which means it’s alcohol content was .05%. On this day 78 years ago the Volstead Act was changed to allow the sale and production of 3.2% beer. While that still seems low by today’s standards, at that time was a huge victory and within 8 months helped lead to the repeal of Prohibition. So tonight grab a beer and toast the end of “near beer”.

Supposedly one could make beer using their coffee pot. I’m not sure I’m willing to try it but if any of you try it post below and let me know how it is.
No I don’t mean aliens or Star Trek. The other night I was checking my email and came across one from Granite City Brewery. They emailed me with a promotional video and wanted me to post it to on here to get the word out about them bottling beers. At first I didn’t know what to think. I was torn between shock that someone wanted me to do something with my blog for their brewery and sadness because it was Granite City. I’ve been to the one in KC and to be honest I wasn’t impressed. To top off my visit one of the employees even agreed that the beers were not that good. But you know I’ll let all that slide and post the video. Only because it was the first contact I had with another brewery asking to get the word out. Here you go.
