What is noticeable is the fact that I seem to have given short shrift to the local beer scene. I plead guilty. This is partly because I get offered beers to sample by PR firms for national brands (and in accordance with the rules, I label the articles as such), and some of these are from my video beer reviews on YouTube, where I get more "clicky," and theoretically, some revenue, if I review beers more people are likely to want to hear about. I am attempting to address that imbalance, and to use some articles I had written for other sites which I am no longer part of. So keep watching the webs, beer fans!
