I Am a Beer Snob

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 60 People

    I Used to Hate Beer.

    Until just after I turned 21, I thought I hated beer, but then I tried some, and I've learned I love Amber Ales, and I happen to live in a part of the country that produces tons of micro breweries, and I love it. I love trying new beers and refining my tastes about them.

    I only drink quality and I'll support a local brewery before an over priced bar full of drama any day!

    I just ABSOLUTELY LOVE Philadelphia Pale Ale by

    Yards Brewing Company! Clean, crisp & citrusy! Not cheap, $9.99 a 6-pack, but well worth it - great on tap too! www.yardsbrewing.com
