It has been a crazy fun 3 years

I can’t believe it has been 3 years – 1095 days – 26280 hours since I made the first post on Simply Beer.  On September 28th 2008, I launched Simply Beer with one idea, Share my love of beer with who ever is willing to read or hear me.  Since then it is amazing how much Simply Beer has evolved and in turn how I have changed with it.

My first post was about me,  “It’s all in the Pour”.  Since then I have written almost 500 posts and you have posted over 2000 comments.  Never did I dream that Simply Beer would have such a loyal and wonderful following of people. Simply Beer has allowed me to gain a very unique insight into beer, beer culture, and the people who make great and for that I’m eterinally thankfull.

I’ve never really been big on the stats for Simply Beer, but after 3 years it is very cool to see what posts have peaked peoples interest.  So, here are the top 5 read posts on Simply Beer, some may actually surprise you:

5. Homebrew: Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter Recipe

4.Founders Porter Review

3. Brooklyn Brewery Manhattan Project Review

2. Jockey Box Project

1. How Many Calories are in my Beer

As Simply Beer has evolved from a beer review site into a homebrewing resource it has been extremely gratifying to mirror what I’m passionate about.  While I still love the immense varity of beer that homebrewer and pro prewers are creating, my passion for making beer has been elevated to new heights and in turn Simply Beer has followed.

I hope you will continue reading and following me and how I continue to grow and evolve in and with this wonderful culture of beer people!  Because if it were not for the people there is no way I could have continued for 3 years.  Beer people are good people!

Cheers and thanks for making the last 3 years so memorable.
