Something new I've started to try and keep track of where all my stuff is getting published. Here's the October Round-up:

I'm shamelessly stealing this from the the great Joshua Bernstein (beer writer for Bon Appetit and author of The Complete Beer Course) who posts a monthly recap of his writings for various publicat...

Hi Google+!

Sorry I've ignored you so much lately (I don't think I'm the only one), but here's a post that I really want to share about my experience drinking beers on the tour bus of one of my favorite bands: 

http://www.pastemagazine.com/articles/2014/09/im-pretty-sure-we-partied-my-afternoon-on-the-hold.html
It was a warm, uncharacteristically muggy August evening in the deep generica heart of Orange County, California.

A couple of months ago I was invited to the Paso Robles brewery to sit-in on the exclusive winemakers blending session for Firestone Walker Brewing Co. XVII Anniversary Ale. Bottles of the brew are showing up on store shelves now; here's my exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the making of the beer. 
In August 2013 I was invited to take a trip to the Firestone Walker brewery in Paso Robles to attend the annual winemakers blending session that would create the brewery's seventeenth anniversary b...

New piece up on Menuism about how to pick a beer to order when the tap list is just too long and overwhelming: 
If you just want a satisfying and restorative beer, try a pilsner. The classic golden lager makes for an excellent start to a session, is great before a meal, and pilsners pair wonderfully with many foods.

I get asked a lot why Los Angeles has been so slow to embrace the craft beer revolution, and this piece about Eagle Rock Brewery's struggles with the city bureaucracy gives a good indication that some blame can be placed on the a local government that is anything but friendly to small businesses. Let's help ERB stay open, and after that fight's won, let's help reform the CIty of L.A. and make it a better place for business.

Pioneering craft brewery Eagle Rock Brewery is heading into yet another public hearing next week in an effort to renew the city license that allows it to continue to operate.

I've been really bad about keeping G+ updated, but I'm going to turn that around! 

This weekend marked three years since my mom's passing, and I wrote a little something last week to try and put it into perspective. I shared it on FB and Twitter, but forgot about G+, so here you go:
It has been three years since everything changed. Since my moms died. “Everything” might sound hyperbolic, but from my perspective it is pretty accurate. The first months after that phone call I ca...

I remembered I had a blog that wasn't dedicated to beer and wrote a little thing about music and life-lessons.

LA Taxi Companies may be licensed, but they are also crooked and horrible. 
City officials sent cease-and-desist letters to Uber, Lyft and Sidecar, promising to crack down on automobile-for-hire services that operate without a permit.

Ride sharing is immensely popular and functional in Washington DC. Riders are called "slugs" and line up at public slug stops known as "slug lines" which have specific directions. Drivers wanting to use the car pool stop by these slug lines, pick up whomever is in front, and drive that direction. DC is also shaped like a pinwheel in that all the big gov agencies are in the center, so that system wouldn't necessarily be as functional in a city built differently.
