Welcome to Potable Pastime. Thanks for stopping by!
A little about me – I’m a beer geek/craft beer evangelist and aficionado of fine spirits, cocktails (especially Tiki drinks!), and wine. I like to play bartender at home (but be warned – I’ve been told I make strong and sometimes tart drinks!). I’ve been brewing beers and meads for a number of years, and am especially fond of making American-style (west coast) IPAs and Bavarian-style wheat beers. Beyond my own brewing, I enjoy sampling a wide variety of beer styles.
As for spirits, I’m a fan of 100% agave tequila (blancos are my favorites), have really started exploring the world of rums, and do also enjoy gin, single malt scotch (Islay and sherried in particular), and bourbon.
In the wine department, I tend to like big, dry, tannic reds a lot, but also appreciate a good white wine on occasion.
Here you’ll find my reviews and tasting notes for beers, spirits, and wines, as well as select cocktail recipes. Hope you enjoy!
