Brewer's Bios - How To's and What For's
« on: February 18, 2010, 04:08:02 pm »
Friends, Brewers, countrymen, lend me your ears…

Aaron the Intern, here.  This is an addendum to what Gary has already posted regarding this topic.  What we have is a great feature on the webpage called Brewer of the Week (  What we don’t have is a backlog of brewer profiles with which to fund this amazing and entertaining scene. 

We want your profiles, we want your friends’ profiles, and we want the profiles of the weirdest, wildest, most dedicated brewers we can find.  Personality counts for a lot, but so too does content.  Thus, we have compiled a list of questions our members may use to build their profile.  Think of it this way, if your friends and fellow brewers are sick of your stories, we have a way to introduce you to a whole new audience. 

We reserve the right to exercise editorial discretion in terms of size, content, format, and what we choose to publish.  What follows are some questions to provide some basis for your profile.  You do not need to answer every question nor should you feel confined to the format we have put together.  Brewer profiles should be sent to: [b][/b]
