Greetings fellow beer appreciators, and welcome to this corner of This is the first post in what hopefully will be a fun journey through the world of beer and brewing. Along the way I’ll provide beer news, information and some beer reviews. I’ll also post reader reviews and recommendations, for those inclined to share them. I plan to post daily or every other day, so check back often for insight and commentary on beer and the beer world.

Some people have already asked: Why call the blog “The Thirsty Beagle”? Pretty simple, really. My wife and I, while enjoying a nice Belgian brew several years ago, decided we should open our own pub and name it The Thirsty Beagle. We have a beagle — the lovable/mischievous/stubborn Buster — and were enamored with the idea of a pub with a wooden beagle carving on the sign. Long story short, we never opened our own pub, but held on to the dream that something should be named The Thirsty Beagle. And now you have it.

My next post: Sam Adams seasonal brew OctoberFest is hitting liquor store shelves. How does it stack up? Stay tuned.
