This month’s “Session” post is all about “Finding Beer Balance,” a topic I thought would offer a way for beer bloggers to share about passions in their lives that intersect or may be outside of their blogging hobby.
I love beer. I love drinking beer.
But I love other things, too.
Such is the case with any beer fan. We’ve got jobs, families and hobbies outside of our favorite libation.That’s a good thing.
So how do I find balance to measure out the time I spend drinking beer? The easy answer would be “thinking about it.”
I’ve got books and magazines and a binder of homebrew recipes.
But most of all, I’ve got this blog. It encourages me to think critically about beer and educate myself, especially when I’m not drinking. I want to know the “how” and “why” when it comes to the beer I drink, which means I’m looking up information long after I empty the last drop of my glass.
Beer is more than a drink. It’s a part of my life to assess and understand.
I find balance through enjoying beer and through passion for beer, I find balance.
