Craft Beer Group! Sound Off And Add Your Name [View all]

I brought this up a while ago and did get some good response. But now Skinner has given the official go-ahead to see if the interest is there.

So please, if you’d like to see a Craft Beer Group on DU add your name here and lets get it done. I love beer and I love to share with friends. I know I can’t share a pint with you all through the internet but as a truly global community I know there has to be others out there on DU that feel the same.

If you are a home brewer you can drop science on us or discuss successes and failures. If you are just a drinker like me i’d love to know what you are drinking, what’s going on in your local scene, and what do you think about what’s happening in the industry.
