Welcome to the Local Beer Blog! The basic idea is this: wherever I go, I'll sample the local beer and tell you about it. And I'l let you know about other cool beer stuff, too.
Why 'local'? When you buy local, you're supporting the local economy. Don't take my word for it, check out this article from BeerAdvocate.com. I know I'd rather have my beer money go to the local microbrewery than to the execs and advertising campaigns for Coors or Anheuser-Busch. It just so happens that this is American Craft Beer Week, so get out and support your local brewery!
A lot of beer reviews will give a grade -- B+ or 8.7 out of 10. I'm just going to drink the beer and let you know what I think.
Hope you dig it!
