Happy New Year! I hope you all are off to a great start for 2017. I know I am. With another year comes a bit more wisdom, experience, change, and set of goals. The biggest goal and the biggest change? I am branching out from the world of beer reviews to cover what I like to call the earthly trinity: wine, spirits, and of course, my first love- beer. Closely linked to the first goal is a renewed energy and variety. It will not necessarily be an even rotation, but learn to expect and dare I say, anticipate non-beer reviews here. Why, who knows, I may start to sound like I know a thing or two about wine after a few reviews.
Granted, there will still be picture, pithy prose, and the occasional delve into a particular style or history for adult beverages. Think of this site as a more robust, comprehensive look into the finer drinks in life.
Upcoming articles will include:
- My favorite cocktail, the Manhattan
- Californian Chardonnay
- Beers for deep winter
- Beer myths
- Spirit-barrel aged wine
Raise a glass to 2017 and a revamped John Shoemaker’s Beer Reviews (other alcohol reviewed also)!
