I’ve been having a good time collecting NFTs on the Worldwide Asset eXchange (WAX). I guess it was only a matter of time before I ended up minting my own NFTs. I pondered which of my content was most appropriate and landed on my Craft Beer Spots effort. I’ve documented hundreds of breweries, bottle shops and bars over the last few years and have taken many photographs of each. The initial concept was that of a “trading card” so I looked through this site and created some collections of related venues to serve as themes for a series. I’ve now executed two series, the first being that of the chosen theme– craft beer spots that specialize in sour beers (among my favorite styles).Continue Reading →
I love craft beer and am regularly impressed by the graphics I see on cans and bottles.

I’m a big fan of craft beer. I don’t get excited about food– in fact, there is a ton of food I don’t like (or won’t even try). I know, not very mature of me but that’s just my thing.

In fact, if there is a beer of a style I like that I’ve not had, I will always choose it even if one of my very favorites is available right alongside it.
This blog is largely about professional topics, but I’ve been working in some music and concert info for a while and have decided to make it about anything I’m interested in and not just work. So, I’m expanding it to talk about some of my favorite beers and breweries. I’m in the Charlotte, NC area so the focus will mostly be on this region.
Right now I like sour beers most. I enjoy most wheat and fruit beers and have gown to appreciate most all styles with the exception of anything very hoppy (which excludes most pale ales), smoked or containing rye. My latest favorite style I’m on the look out for is a dry-hopped sour.
I was a big fan of Wicked Weed until they sold out, some favorites of the moment are Burial, Fonta Flora, Salud Beer Shop and a few others. As for places, or the spots where one can get these tasty beverages, I decided to take it a big step forward and produce a new website on the topic!
I thought this glass was share-worthy. Flying Saucer has a pint glass night from time to time where you can get limited edition beer glasses. They often align with holidays or events and this was the glass for Father’s Day 2017.
