  1. Hey Ryan -- really liked your blog and wanted to shoot you a couple questions. Do you have an e-mail where I can direct them to?

    1. Sure Daniel, you can contact me at

  2. Hey there,

    Just stumbled across your page and wanted to see if you would try checking in one of these days when you’re having the next great craft beer somewhere. I have been working on “” for quite some time and finally “launched” it this past summer. The idea is it’s a cross between some of the existing sites out there but with the aim of being social, global and crowd-driven.

    Also it’s not an app, but just a website that intends to be easy to use on any device or computer. If you can, try it out and check-in somewhere. It’s via any browser, by going to

    It’s facebook-integrated so it uses that to allow check-ins, etc. But you can turn on/off the FB integration of course.

    Well, thanks for your time,

  3. Hello Ryan,
    I was looking through your site and I like what I see. I am wondering if you would be interested in working with me. I work for a cigar and cigar accessory retailer. I have some ideas on how we could collaborate on this. If you have any interest please let me know. Thank you for your time.

Indiana - One Year

Just a little more than one year ago, my family and I relocated to Indianapolis from New Jersey due to some changes in my full-time job.  It was a tough, yet exciting, move for us.  We quickly had to put our small, 2nd floor condo up for sale, and at the same time travel to Indianapolis to house hunt and find a neighborhood that would suit us.
The prospect of moving to an area with a completely new to me beer landscape was intriguing.  As soon as I knew for sure that my family and I were making the move to Indiana, I performed some online searches to compile a list of the breweries that were local to our new area.  A Google Map was created just for the breweries.  Facebook pages and Instagram pages were followed.

I quickly learned that Indiana isn't quite like other states I've visited where alcohol is involved.  Some of these laws astonished me!
First things first, any minor (under 21 years old) is not allowed to step foot in a liquor store.  Not even accompanied by an adult…

Dogfish Head Positive Contact

Frankenstorm is on it's way.  Bread: Check.  Candles: Check.  Ice: Check.  Beer: Check!  The big storm is supposed to strike land here in NJ late Sunday night into early Monday morning, and last until late Tuesday.  Kerry and I live in the western part of NJ, so we should be safe from most of it, except for local river flooding.  Tonight I'll be reviewing Positive Contact from Dogfish Head.  This is their collaboration with Dan the Automator (who I honestly had never heard of before this collaboration).
I poured Positive Contact into my Yards Brewing tulip glass.  It poured a pale orange, golden color with a two and a half finger width head.  Apples, bananas and peppers hit my nose right away.  The smell is incredible and strong.  The Positive Contact is full of flavor, and reminds me of a smooth drinking Belgian tripel.  It tastes immediately of fruity esters, mainly banana.  The finish is peppery.  I'm not getting any apple flavor.  This beer is light bodied, with avera…

The Six-Pack Project: New Jersey

Welcome to the Six-Pack Project!  The idea of the project is to create a six-pack of beer that would best represent the current beer scene in your respective state.  For me, that is obviously New Jersey.  The Six-Pack Project was created by Bryan over at the This Is Why I'm Drunk blog.  Check out his introduction to the project here!

10 years ago, beer probably wasn't the first thing that came to your mind when you were thinking about New Jersey.  However, times are changing, and it's an exciting time to be a beer drinker in the Garden State.  Every year, more and more bars are starting to serve a greater variety in beer.  Even more importantly, new breweries haven been opening in NJ each year, and lots more are in planning
Today, there is a wide variety of beer brewed here in New Jersey.  Choosing six beers to best represent the state was no easy feat, but I was up for it!  Hopefully, the following will clue you in a little bit more to some of the best bottled beers tha…
