Meet the Beer Bloggers of Ontario

Back when I started the "Meet the Brewers" segment of this blog I had no idea how popular it would become.  Some of the quasi interviews conducted with the men and women of the brewing industry (not just brewers) received many hits throughout the day they were posted, some ranking in the top ten posts (in terms of overall traffic) since the start of this blog.

Recently I thought it would be fun to start a shorter segment along the same lines as "Meet the Brewer," so today I give you the "Meet the Beer Bloggers of Ontario" feature.  I thought it would be fun for readers to get to know a little more about the other beer bloggers out there covering the industry with their own thoughts and opinions.  There aren't that many of us, but the number is growing.

I can still remember the comment Greg Clow said back when I started this blog about the lack of Canadian beer bloggers in his "welcome to the show" post he wrote about Great Canadian Pubs & Beer. 

Some time ago, I was lamenting about the fact that the number of Canadian beer bloggers seemed to be disproportionately low in comparison to our American counterparts. There hasn’t been a huge change since then, but I’m happy to report that at least one newcomer has joined our ranks, with more enthusiasm than the rest of us combined. - Greg Clow, New(ish) Blog Alert, Oct 7, 2007

The number of beer bloggers has risen since that post, and continues to rise.  It seems more and more people are getting behind their computer, pouring a beer and sharing their notes with us more than ever.  And it's great. Unless you're this guy

Over the next several days you'll be able to get to know your local Ontario beer bloggers a little better as they've shared their stories with me, answering questions about beer, what they do when their not drinking, talking, or writing about beer, providing their thoughts on the Ontario beer industry and more.  

After you've finished reading their answers, head to their blog, read their posts, familiarize yourself with them; after all they're all about entertaining you with their different beer perspectives.
