Hello brewery friends!

My number one goal with starting my Indy Brewery reviews was to get the conversation rolling about great beer brewed right here in our hometown, Indianapolis. To that end, I foresee some long-form content coming soon in the form of conversations but also, this, a mini-blog!!!


Ramit Sethi, finance guru and overall funny guy has an interesting tid-bit in I Will Teach You to Be Rich (fantastic book btw) where he talks about a familiar story of people he knew trying to get fit… Quoting from his book:

Here was a common situation: John was forty-five…

I’ve noticed an interesting aspect of the culture in America. We are almost totally disassociated from our bodies. Really, we are almost totally disassociated from the nature.

Why is this?

We are heady. Literally, we feel as though problems are to be solved in our “heads”. Feelings are generally to…

There’s absolutely nothing to do.

This is the abominable condition of mankind: boredom.

A way to think about how you treat others… and yourself.

I have some serious commitment issues.

I have this friend that I was close with for a year in college. He just moved in town. Every time I think of him I have that gut-wrenching thought, “Wow, I really need to hang out with him, I’ve been a terrible friend!”…
