As I are engineer, my limited vocabulary will not genuinely convey how excited I am for this time of year. As this will be my 4th Beer Bloggers & Writers Conference, I am always psyched to experience new beers and old friends. What makes it that much more exhilarating is that is on our home turf! This week, we not only have the honor to travel to Loudoun County in Northern Virginia for The Conference, but it is one where we get to show off what amazing progress this state has made in just a short amount of time. I…

This is one of my favorite articles every year. Don't get me wrong, I love all my kids equally, but when I get to put fingers to keyboard for this one, I genuinely get excited. Why? Because it means that the annual Beer Bloggers & Writers Conference is right around the corner. And as we are only a mere week away from the festivities, I am already getting pumped. This year, we travel to Milwaukee, which is Algonquin for "the good land." It also marks our 3rd appearance at the conference, which started back in 2010. VBR has been to…

While we travel around this great Commonwealth a lot covering all of the craft beer in the state, once a year we get to meet up with the same crazy people who do the same thing in other parts of the country. That's right, we are less than a month away from heading to the annual Beer Bloggers & Writers Conference. Last year, we invaded Asheville, North Carolina and it was like nothing else. Between the food, talks, commodity, and also just a little bit of beer, we had an experience of a lifetime. This year we are seasoned veterans,…

#BBC15 Roundup: Ferris Bueller Edition

"I asked for a car, I got a computer. How's that for being born under a bad sign?" It's a typical writing night for me. The little lady is already asleep with the cat trying to monopolize the remaining area between her and myself.  TV is on a movie I've seen so that I really don't need to watch, but I can drop a quote or two while editing.  But this one article was a little different but reminiscent. After having one of the most unique experiences in my writing pseudo-career, I was thinking on how to wrap all of it up…

We have had an amazing time here at the Beer Bloggers & Writers Conference from our trip to Raleigh on Thursday touring several breweries, to Friday night's insane event at Sierra Nevada, to Kim Jordan, CEO of New Belgium, giving the keynote address a little earlier today. All of that we will wrap up later on, but for now we are ready to engage in a little bit of live blogging. I know that things on this website aren't really coming through 'live', but this was posted the second this event ended. The North Carolina Brewers Guild brought a bunch…

We'd like to take a little time out from our regularly scheduled program to talk about what we have coming up. We love to write about Virginia and we love to write about beer. The process is fun and exciting, but we always strive to be better. And there are two ways we can achieve that. First is that we can try beer outside of Virginia. We are humble enough to understand what the beer culture is throughout the entire United States and the world. It gives us perspective on the levels of quality and trends in beer styles and…
