Just wanted to say thank you, thank you, thank you. We had our 20,000th visit today and we couldn’t be happier. Though this year has brought about some rough times for the blog, we’ve managed to keep bailing out water just as fast as its coming in. A very special thank you to our recipe maven, Alyssa Sandore, for always giving us something interesting to try over the weekend. Another thank you to our Hoptellectual contributors, Kyle Sparks and Todd Stevens.
Again, this whole project is meant to be a collaboration between people who enjoy beers. We’re thrilled that we got to work with Michael Kiser on some site stuff, and even more excited that we’ve shared beers and stories with many of you. The other day, someone asked me if there really isn’t anything to do in the Midwest (“I mean, it’s really cold there!”). I laughed and laughed and laughed. The life of this blog testifies towards the wealth of culture present in the Heartland. It’s a special place, and like brewing a good beer, it takes a little while to see that the people make it so special.
Thanks everyone for the hits. Here’s to 20,000 more!
Brian and Anthony
