Beer is a big business in this part of the world, with some of the best and most sought-after brews made right in our own back yard. But too often that beer culture is hidden behind the iconic wine industry that defines the region. The Beer Country blog will bring you news and notes about our local brew scene, and maybe a little about cider and spirits while we’re at it, brought to you by beer fanatic and occasional homebrewer Sean Scully. Have news, ideas, or questions that need answering? Drop a line at 521-5313 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow us on Twitter @beercountry and on Facebook.
