Hi everyone. My introductory first post on AHA.
« on: January 28, 2017, 07:54:22 PM »
Seeing as how I am new to this forum, here is a little bit about me, for all of you to know who just squeezed into this forum.
Hi everyone. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of everything here. I have a myriad of interests, with great tasting, well-made, craft beers being one of them. I am a people person and would love to have any type of conversation that leads to mutual connectivity. I am open minded and want to learn more about brewing experiences, ideas, and where brewing is ultimately headed. I also have a sarcastic and fun side. I am tall, blonde haired and blue eyed (this is true). I was in the Navy for six years. After schooling, I was attached to the USS Nimitz for the rest of my stint. I haven't been brewing for nearly as long as most any of you, but I have made ciders and a few tasty beers lately.
Why I am here: first and foremost, I am here in search of opportunities to assist those that have aspirations of growing their brewing horizons and creating (craft) beer brand(s); towards whatever extent they wish.
Secondly, I am also here to be more connected to the home-brewing scene and those individuals who are out there making things happen with craft beers in order to push the boundaries further.
Where I am: I am currently located in Oakland California and once this idea that brought me in front of you takes off, I will be expanding nationwide with franchises wherever beer is being brewed en masse.
Thank you for the opportunity to meet with whomever engages with me. Cheers everyone.

Welcome!

The great thing about this forum is that most participants play nice and you can get some real guidance here that can benefit your brewing and enjoyment. You can be anonymous as you like, but remembering the Golden Rule is always welcome.

Having been involved in the professional craftbrewing ranks, I can tell you that this is the place to get real information on the hobby and process. Homebrewers are in it for fun. Some of that disappears when your livelihood is on the line. More knowledge will benefit your beer, but only a minimum is needed. Add what you want and need and then enjoy!

I hope you will also seek out a local homebrewing club to enjoy your hobby with. My club is one of the highlights of my existence.

   Nothing spoils a fun activity as fast as turning it into a JOB, eh?
I spent most of my money on beer, tools and guns, the rest I foolishly squandered on stupid stuff!

Add me to that list. Just a hobby for me. I have a job.
