I write about beer and whiskey full-time; this is
my day-job. That means I sell my best stuff, and I hope you'd like to read
some of it. The links below are to stories I've sold to Beverage
Business and Cheers magazines, the Chicago Tribune, Ale
Street News, and anywhere else I've made a sale. (If you come across a
dead link, please let me know.
Hard Football Facts is a lot of fun if you're a football
fan...a particularly obsessed football fan. Kerry Byrne, who
is a damned good writer and funnier than hell, takes on the
"pundits" with facts, stats, and not an ounce of fear, writing a
site that will, I think, become a household name in fans' homes this year.
I write the beer column for the site. So go
BeverAge: This is the
seven-year archives index for BeverAge magazine, a magazine for Massachusetts beer stores and
wholesalers (formerly known as Massachusetts Beverage Business). You
can check out all the stuff I've written for them here.
The Formaldehyde Story:
This is actually a piece on about six 'beer myths,' but every month I get
hits from people Googling "beer and formaldehyde." It's no
longer up on the Beverage Business site, so I put it up here for your
East End Brewing: A short piece
on a new Pittsburgh brewery.
Beer Tasting: something I did for the Real Beer Page, a tasting of
five PA beers for American Beer Month. Dance, Fat Beer, Dance.
Hammer: A piece I wrote for Ale Street News on how I helped Tom Baker
of Heavyweight Brewing develop Perkuno's Hammer, a big (8.0%) Baltic-style
porter (Tom picked it up and runs it on his website).
you see anything here that seems crazy, or if you think I've
contradicted myself somewhere, please click here.
