headshot-webI’m Bryan Roth, a beer enthusiast and homebrewer. This site is a fun way for me to log my thoughts about beer and the beer industry. Posts range widely, from a rare review to socio-cultural analysis. My writing has won several awards, including recognition from the North American Guild of Beer Writers.

It should be noted that I’m not drunk when I’m writing these entries … just having a bit of fun with the title. Not only do I (obviously) support moderation and responsible drinking habits, I know their importance.

My goal with this blog is to take an “academic” approach to beer, learning more about the intricacies of the brewing process, the industry and sharing what I’ve learned to help educate myself and other beer lovers. In addition to my writing on this blog, I’ve contributed to All About Beer, Beer Advocate and Good beer Hunting.

Want to talk beer, writing or marketing? I’m always happy to chat. Email me and follow me on Twitter and Instagram.

You can also “meet” me on this Dec. 2014 podcast with Tales from the Cask, a Feb. 2015 Q&A with Beer is Your Friend and in this video – an interview I did with Josh of Short On Beer in July 2013:

    Hi Ryan, I really like you goal with this blog, as I assume many others do as well. Have you tried Grain Belt Noreast?

    1. Thanks very much! I honestly haven’t ever even seen that beer. It might be regionally distributed, so I wouldn’t see it in NC. What are some of your other favorite brews?

      1. onedreamymess May 1, 2013 — 2:15 pm

        Yes, Nordeast is a domestic beer brewed in Minnesota. It is pretty cheap and I am a poor college student so we are a perfect match. I also prefer Shiner bock and Fat Tire.

      2. Yes, I remember what those days were like. Lots of Blue Moon and Yuengling with some Sam Adams sprinkled in when I wanted to splurge. I’m very fond of Fat Tire myself! Happy (craft beer) days are certainly ahead.

  7. THis blog is awesome! Hey I have some writing ideas too. Email me! 🙂

  8. Following now! Love your blog. Makes me more excited for my own craft beer journey. http://beerbellyblogger.wordpress.com/

    1. Very cool – happy that you found it and enjoy it! Look forward to have you along for all the journeys ahead.

    I like the blog! And “The Six-Pack Project” is a great idea. I might put something together for that.

    1. Thanks – please do let me know if you’re interested in joining!

  10. Great blog. Homebrewing is the only way to go. At tne moment I’m having a thing about Citra. If you look at my blog you can skip everything just look at the beer page. I am now officially a follower.

    1. Thanks so much! I’m currently in a love affair with Mosaic. It’s hard to turn away from Amarillo, though.

  11. Great blog and I love the six-pack project! (although to have no San Diego brew hit the Cali list is just sinful!) About to jump into the homebrewing universe myself on a mission to make Black IPAs. I’ll point your site out to the rest of my beer loving crew. Cheers!

    1. Thank you! I’m yet to make a black IPA, but I have been honing a session IPA recipe the last few months. It’s a wonderful hobby that’s introduced me to many great people. I hope you have as much of a good time as I do!

      … and if you’d like to contribute to the Six-Pack Project, let me know.

  12. Nice Blog!! Love beer myself.


    1. Thanks for coming by! Appreciate the kind words. Don’t be a stranger.

  13. Hey Bryan,
