I am your fearless cult leader. My name is Paul. I’ve been working in the craft beer industry in various capacities for the better part of my adult life. I am lucky to call Portland, Maine my home, as it features one of the highest per-capita brewery ratios in the world. For nearly the past 20 years, I’ve kept a watchful eye on the evolution of the beerscape. Now I want to share some of my insights, anecdotes, revelations, epiphanies, and experiences with you. First and foremost, however, I’m a beer fan at heart, and it is from this perspective that I find inspiration for this blog.
