Why and How:
Being in the line of work that I’m in, I spend a lot of time traveling. For more than 1/2 of the year, I spend my time in different cities across the United States performing different work for clients in the banking industry. Doing this much travel and spending so much time away from home can be very exhausting. Instead of complaining, I just make the best of it.
While working in the different cities I research different breweries, beer events, beer bars, beer stores etc. If there’s something in that area or within two hours of where I’m working, I’ll find it. After doing this for over a year and a half, I finally decided to start Getting Dark Beer Blog in October 2011. I feel that it’s important to record experiences and fun trips, so why not share them with everyone else?
What You’ll See:
In Getting Dark Beer Blog you’ll find articles and reviews of different beer stores, breweries, beer bars, and beers themselves which I’ve experienced. I don’t give numerical grades to these places because I feel that they can be very subjective. I like to give an idea of what the place is like and my experience there and you can make up your minds by yourself as to whether you’d like to visit that place or go to that event.
I used to do beer reviews on this site, but since taste is so subjective, I’ve stopped doing them. Beer Advocate and Rate Beer has the review on lock, so there’s really no point in me doing them. That said, I’ll still leave up the reviews that I did in the past. If you’d like to follow what I’m drinking, then check out my Untappd account Getting Dark Beer Blog on Untappd
What You Won’t See:
I feel that this goes without say, but you will NEVER see anything on this site having to do with politics, sports, religion or subjects unrelated to beer. I don’t care what your views are on these subjects and if you would like to voice your opinion on them, go find another site. There are plenty of them.
You will also not see me bashing on breweries, bars, stores etc in any articles. I’ve always been told that if you don’t have anything good to say, don’t say anything at all. I’ll follow that old saying.
Other Random Tidbits:
I run this website by myself. I take all the pictures, write all the articles etc. There are plenty of places which I’ve visited that aren’t on this site. If you want to ask me questions about a certain city you think I may visited, feel free to contact me.
More importantly, if you want me to review your beer, visit your establishment etc, please feel free to contact me and we’ll make arrangements
Lets Get Dark.
