Beer Me, Earl!


Been trying a lot of new beers lately, thanks to the wonderful and beautiful Gia. Been reading about a bunch more. This hobby is becoming an obsession. I'm going to try to update the Beer-Eyed Blog a bit more often this summer, but in the meantime I am going to make a request of y'all. A little something to make me feel a bit more constructive with this undertaking.

Let me know where you are from and I will do a mini-review of the the craft breweries in your state/country/region.

A simple "Hey, I'm from {insert state/province/country here}. Beer me, Earl!" in the comments is all I am looking for. I know where most of you are from, but you might not be interested. So even if you are a regular reader/commenter, please mention where you are from. And remember, I'm not talking about any of the big name breweries like Coors or Miller or Guinness. I'm talking about some of the smaller craft beer breweries that are popping up all over the globe.

I'll keep it open until Thursday around noon-ish and then I will post all the mini-reviews here on Friday. And then I will try to do some more in depth reviews on the Beer-Eyed Blog in the next few weeks. On specific beers. If I can get my hands on them.

So if you are into craft beer or you would like to learn a little about the breweries in your area, drop me a comment.

Yay! I got first dibs. I'm from Wheatland California. Beer me! (I won't ask you to BEAR me, cuz I don't want any large fuzzy creatures, other than my husband,naturally, roaming around.)

Oh, and just so you know, I would prefer someone with a really good amber ale or a yummy lager. No pilsners for me, thankyouverymuch.

Toodles!

"Hey, I'm from Washington State! Beer me, Earl!"

Though choosing from the dozens of wonderful beers here will be quite a challenge...

Hey, I'm from Arizona. Beer me, Earl!

Looking forward to your reviews. When I was in college, we once had a beer-tasting party for people with long hair. Sampled everything available at the local grocery. That was before micro-brews were widely available, so there wasn't all that much to choose from. Was fun, though.

Can't wait to hear what I need to try, here in AZ. :)

Why would I want you to bear me? That sounds painful!

B.E. Earl said...

Callie and Avitable - thanks for the correction. Duly noted.

2abes - I know of a bunch of gluten-free brews. I'll have to check to see if any are brewed in NY.

The rest of ya - I'm on it!

Hey Earl, I'm from the City of Champions-Boston in case you didn't already know.

Dont even think about some lame Sam Adams post..:)

Candy - I wouldn't dream of it.

sybil law said...

Um, Ohio. Have fun with that one! (Kidding - there is some decent beer here nowadays...)
:)

Heff said...

Birmingham, Alabama, dude. Look into it and see if they still brew "Birmingham Beer" with Vulcan on the lable. I drank that about 13 years ago.

B.E. Earl said...

Sybil - I already knew Ohio was a tough one, but I know of at least one great brewery in Cleveland.

Heff - Vulcan Breweries/Little Star Brewing closed its doors in 2000 or 2001. Sorry.

2abes said...
