You might have noticed that we're trying to post here more often than we have in the past several months. Part of the reason for this is that we know that you, our readers, want to see more content. That's a simple enough reason for our increase in posting frequency.
But we also decided that we want to expand the scope of what we do here, and more frequent posts will naturally result from our expansion of territory. So in that vein, we've put together a new mission statement for the blog--
In 2006, Hoosier Beer Geek was founded with a simple mission: drink great beer and talk about it.
Over the years, this mission has brought us together with people from various backgrounds, including artists, restaurateurs, chefs, entrepreneurs, and other civic leaders. While we didn’t originally anticipate cultivating relationships with these people, we’ve come to value the camaraderie that has blossomed as a result of our befriending them. What’s more, these relationships have allowed us to see that craft beer is about so much more than just drinking. Indeed, we now know that craft beer intersects with art, literature, music, food, urban affairs, economics, manufacturing, religion, and politics, not only locally but nationally.
Originally, drinking beer was our destination. Today, it’s our starting point. So in 2011, Hoosier Beer Geek is still about drinking great beer and talking about it. But sometimes, these beer discussions will lead us to talk about something more than just the beer.
