Recently I wrote a post about one of my favorite beer blogs and websites The Beer Heads Today I want to write about another of my favorite beer blogs, Ramblings of a Beer Runner. The blog is written by Derrick Peterman. He has been a runner for over thirty years, a home brewer and beer enthusiast. This blog is more then just a beer blog. He writes about running, running events, home brewing, books, breweries, brewers them selfs, and of course beer.
I always find Derrick’s beer reviews very informative. I have tried new beers after reading a review on his blog. The blog posts on brewers and their breweries are detailed and even have interviews with the brewers. I am very impressed by Ramblings of a Beer Runner and it has pushed me to be a better blogger. Anyone can write a beer review, rate the scent, flavor, color, and give the beer a rating but to write about how the beer was brewed, thought up, and general information takes real thought and research.
Since Derrick lives close I got to meet him at a beer event a couple months ago. It is nice being able to talk to other beer lovers in person. I have a big group of friends I drink with at Harry’s Hofbrau in San Jose that are very knowledgable about beer and have a good palate but it’s fun to meet someone you’ve only read and looked up to.
Go to the official blog and look back at the posts and the Facebook always has quick links that aren’t in the official blog.
