Why is this site for you?
This site is for anyone who wants to learn. Period.
Two seemingly opposite interests fueled by creativity and passion and perhaps not that different when you stand back and look at the brewer creating something incredible or the writer crafting their masterpiece.
Books can be our greatest resource and yet we hear readership seems to be dropping every year (#bookstagram would show otherwise). There are more books being written than ever before and people seem to have less time to read with technology slowing filling up our lives.
The craft beer industry is exploding and the stories behind the breweries and beer can become lost in the shuffle. I'm here to help guide you in the right direction. I'm by no means an expert and I'm learning as I go, but I'm hoping that makes us similar and we can go through this process together.
The goal of this site is both selfish and altruistic. To share my own thoughts, photos, and ideas about books and beer but to also continue to learn more about myself and learn more from other people who share a similar interest. From other fans of both books and beer, to the writers and publishers of books and the brewers and breweries creating the beer.
My own personal goal is to continue to challenge myself to grow through this site and I challenge you to do the same.
Books have been a constant in my life for as long as I can remember. From reading challenges in elementary school, long road trips with the family, to now listening to audiobooks everywhere I go, the constant has been books.
As I grew older and the craft beer scene began to grow in Alberta I began to notice a trend developing especially when I travelled. Finding new and unique beers and places to drink beer.
The stage was set to bring these two, seemingly different ideas, together and through this process, learn more about both. Not only learn more but to take that one step further and share with you and hopefully lead you to find a book, and maybe a beer, that changes your life.
This is an experiment in bringing two ideas together to the benefit of everyone but it only works if you engage and share. I would love to hear from you.
Welcome and Good Luck!
