    When did your blog start? 2007

    What got you into blogging about beer?
    I write about beer for a living, and I get to go on so many great trips that I can't always place.  Also, with my b2b writing background and so many pent-up rants, I thought it would be a good idea to start an outlet for all that!

    Is beer the only thing you blog about?
    Beer and beer & food, but I'm a bit random - I write for a living and only blog when the mood really takes me. I know a lot of people will say that's not the way to do it but I prefer quality over quantity - in many walks of life in fact!

    How long have you been blogging about beer?
    I've been writing about beer in way or another for over 10 years.

    Any formal writing training? School, Internship, etc.
    I have a BA Honors in Journalism
