About

 

This is a blog about my journey through the booming world of craft beer.  Seven years ago I started writing this blog after staring at the beer section at Food Lion in Aiken on the 4th of July after Dad sent me on a beer run.  I stopped doing the blog for a lot of reasons.  The biggest was I just wasn’t enjoying the beer I was drinking.  I don’t think I even knew it at the time, but the reality was beers like Michelob Honey, Bass, and Rolling Rock weren’t, as my grandfather would say, turning me on.

Don’t get me wrong, I still enjoy a cold Budweiser just as much as I did seven years ago.  I drink the billion dollar beers when I’m watching the Gamecocks because I’m a nervous fan and have to constantly sip to calm myself.  I still enjoy reaching into the cooler on the golf course for a Natty from time to time.  But, when I want to sit back and enjoy a beer now, I go to the Vino Garage on North Main and pick up a mix pack.

Thank you for reading.  I hope this becomes very interactive as I want your input and feedback.  I think the humor is still the same and Mrs. Beer will certainly make her presence felt on the site too.

Cheers,
Franklin

  1. HI, I’ve read some of your beer reviews and quite frankly I can’t believe I’m posting this, but from an avid beer connoisseurs. You have a long way to go brother! please read the definitions of styles of beer, Reinheitsgebot (german purity law of 1487) visit your best local brew pub and bar with the most selection and absorb some education and get some real beer glasses.
    try buying the more expensive brands most of the time they’re worth it-

    Cheers
