Craft beer has always been a hobby and delight of mine. Since the boom of the industry in the 2010’s, I have explored and written about my experiences through various outlets like Untappd, annoying Instagram stories, and word-of-mouth. Tolkien and Brews is my entry into formal beer reviews, as well as a fun gateway for friends and family to keep up with us in a hectic quarantined life. I’m also a huge Tolkien nerd, and would rather create my own forums then be kicked out of others.

I’m usually drinking with my hot wife

If more of us valued food and cheer beer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.
