My name is Jimmy and I currently live in Killeen, TX with my fiance JoAnna. We have two dogs Sadie, a boxer, and Buck, a black Lab mix. I am in the Army and stationed at Fort Hood, “the Great Place.” My beer adventures started in January of 2010 upon my redeployment from Iraq. I visited some good friends in Boulder, Colorado and found myself unable to ski due to an injury. I knew Colorado was known for its beer scene and spent the entire weekend sampling every drop of beer I could. Having caught the bug, I set out on a venture to try as many different beers as I could find. That led to me doing research into the beer industry and eventually brewing my own. As my experiences grew, I began to find that I was the SME (Subject Matter Expert- some Army jargon) amongst my friends. They started asking me questions and more often than not, I was able to answer them. I relished being in a position to help my friends learn about something important to me. I started this blog with the intent of doing the same for others. I don’t intend to review every beer I try here, there are plenty of places on the internet for that. I just want to talk about beer and poor JoAnna can’t take it anymore! Cheers!
