The Thirsty Muse is a site dedicated to the casual & social drinker who enjoys great beer from around the world (particularly craft beer), wine, cocktails and spirits and the culture surrounding these great libations. I hope to share new discoveries, and the people and places responsible for making great adult beverages with you. My goal is to inspire us all to drink better.

By exploring the world of great drinks, we can learn together why man has gathered to raise a glass and tell stories for centuries. Occasionally, I’ll throw in some posts centered around photography, painting, or any other creative activity I mix with booze…after all, that is the spark that created this site. (you can read more about why I started The Thirsty Muse here)

I am an artist, photographer, writer, musician, and family guy who loves sitting on the patio with friends and family and a tasty beverage. I hope you enjoy the site – feel free to share your thoughts.

    Love the site! I’m a novice with respect to craft beer but hope to learn more by staying in tune with your site. Don’t back down! Bud, Coors, etc. completely suck!

    At this point I drink mainly IPAs but could sometimes be persuaded to enjoy a good belgian. Hopefully reading your blog will inspire more range.

    Anyways, best of luck with the blog and hopefully someday the fam will get together and we can enjoy a tasty brew.
