Welcome to BetterBeerBlog. The idea for the blog was simple, blog about “better beer”. My initial intent was to pick up a couple of beers every week from my local BevMo and review them on this site. I had intended this blog to be a resource for beer reviews in an attempt to help the “Average Joe” (or Jane) make informed decisions about beer.
As you can probably guess, what I write about has expanded far beyond what my original intentions were. Yes, beer reviews will still be a part of the BetterBeerBlog content but I’ve expanded also to cover local beer events and festivals. As a homebrewer, I will gladly share with my readers the beers I make and as a Certified-level BJCP judge, I will try and show you the ins and outs of being a judge. It’s actually a lot of work. I will also do my best to introduce readers to the many craft brewers in my area. The San Francisco Bay Area has a vibrant craft beer scene that goes far beyond the local breweries, brew pubs and bars that I would love to share with you all.
Basically, this blog is about my adventures in craft beer. I hope you’ll join me for the ride.
Mabuhay (pronounced mah-BOO-high) is a tagalog expression that can mean many things. Taken literally, it means “Life!”. Mabuhay is the tagalog equivalent of “cheers!” and it is in this context that I use it.
