Thanks for visiting! I am Willie Shearon. I am bred, born, and based in the Midwest. I studied biology in college so I particularly appreciate brewing as a science. By using a brewery as a way to learn more about the local communities, visitors can see how the cultural landscape is transformed by the business.

I focus on brewery tours. I’ll write about a lot of different places, even if I don’t get a tour, but I love the experience of seeing a brewery with fellow fans on a tour. I’ve seen a few breweries that have been here longer than the rotunda on the U.S. Capitol Building. These businesses are staples in their communities. By pumping money into the city or town, rural breweries keep residents employed, fed, and healthy.

This is a fun hobby of mine at this point, but I am always looking to expand the platform to help beer enthusiasts find new breweries or venues. Our unique style of rating each brewery (tour) takes into account Price, Pours, and Pleasantness. I consider these three criteria to rate each tour experience on a 5-point scale.
