An Apology to Pubs and Breweries

In the six years I've been writing this blog, I've done my best to pass along event information sent to me by breweries and pubs. I am choosey, but I have tended to highlight events on a regular basis. I've also tried to give public feedback on any beer sent my way.

At this point, I receive at least one email every weekday alerting me to an event or new beer--or new blog or some cool link, invitation to a cool event, or any manner of interesting missives. Perhaps you've sent me one. If you're wondering why I never post the info you've sent me, it's because I've run out of time. About the best I can do is put up a post--and as you've seen, the content tends to be tethered pretty firmly to whatever I happened to be working on that day. I've got a deadline for May 1 that is requiring huge gobs of time, and the blog is suffering (as is my ability to maintain even my incredibly low level of event-participation). Don't expect anything to improve until after May.

I do apologize--one of the joys of blogging is the interaction, of being part of a community of bloggers and beer fans. Things will be back to normal after the first of May.


  1. God's speed, Jeff, or, get 'er done. Looking forward to the fruits of your labors.

  2. I think this is the time of year where many people tend to simply get busy with their real work and lives and have a little less time to focus on their passions and hobbies. Over the last 5+ years of blogging, I've noticed that visitor traffic starts taking a noticeable dip during the late winter and early spring. Now that the holidays are over, it's a time where big projects at work or at home need some attention. Lots of folk like myself tend to get real busy. So don't fret the lack of time to blog. Rather, know that the time you are spending at other things are also well worth it.
