If you’re reading this, then let me start by saying I’m flattered you wanted to learn a little more about me. If you clicked on this by accident, your page view still counts. Ha ha.
I’m a journalist by trade and have been a beer lover for just as long. I started writing about craft beer in 2007 as a reporter with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. I chronicled the rise of Georgia’s “burgeoning” craft beer industry: We had three production breweries in the entire state, and beers above 6% ABV were legal for the first time, but Sunday package sales were still illegal. A lot has changed since then.
I started this humble blog in 2012 partly to write about my hobby of homebrewing and partly as an outlet for beer stories that I couldn’t find a home for. It’s evolved since then. I’ve spent an awful lot of time covering beer laws in my home state. Occasionally, I’ll do strange things like run three miles for three beers. I’ll be the first to admit that there’s no rhyme or reason to the stories I write — just whatever is interesting me at the moment.
I hope in these infrequent ramblings you’ll find something entertaining and informative. I promise that I’ll keep this site going at least until I score a sweet six-figure book deal and move to Hawaii. Just kidding; no one reads books anymore.
You also can follow me on Twitter at @seawould, which my outlet of choice for beer stuff.
