Liquid Courage

mattWater, malt, hops, and yeast. Doesn’t sound like much of a list, does it? These four ingredients are the backbone–and the magic–of every beer you’ve ever had. These four humble elements contain the potential to delight or to disgust, to satisfy or to frustrate. Beer is a living thing, and sometimes our encounters with it can be messy.

Yet good (and great) beer is so much more than four mundane ingredients. It’s passion, energy, and creativity. It’s an oak-aged, fruit-added, dry-hopped, twice-fermented, style-bending orgy of taste and bold flavor. It’s alive, and it’s been made just for you.

Liquid Courage is a blog on a mission. My mission as a homebrewer, enthusiast, and writer is to help you sort through the million miles of aluminum cans and bar stools to find that one elusive perfect beer. Your perfect beer is out there, hiding behind mass marketing, high prices, and wine snobs. I’m determined to find it. So grab a pint of Courage and join in.
