My name is Roger. I occasionally brew beer at home. I also spend time drinking beer. When inspired I even write about the experience of brewing and drinking. Periodically there are pictures. You may as well stop expecting too much right now.  I’m just an average jerk who drinks and writes.  Once upon a time I dreamed of opening an actual brewery. Never know, it could still happen. It would have been/will be called Lost Cause. Like most lost causes it likely won’t happen but after several good IPA’s hope lives.

  1. I came across your blog and wanted to send you some ideas.

    We promote fun drinking while helping people stay out of trouble. We’re not an anti-alcohol company but merely a company with goals to keep people DUI-free.

    The ones who get in the most trouble are guys – ages 21-35. As some of this demographic falls within the craft beer drinkers, I thought the article below might be helpful to your audience.

    Here is our Superbowl blog –

    It’s a big drinking time – hence increased police and road blocks. Feel free to use information within the blog or a mention/link if you feel so inclined.

    Let me know what you think,


  2. I spent a night in Kingman once upon a time. Now I live in NM, where I sculpt bronze beer bottle openers (amongst other things).
    I’d love to see what you think of these fine art bronzes adapted for opening beers I have on Kickstarter…
    And I’d be delighted if you wanted to share them!

  4. Edge Media Publishing needs a freelance writer from NM to write on the NM beer culture. We aren’t looking for professional journalists, we’re looking for people who KNOW and will/like to write about it. We have proof-readers and editors here to keep the article crisp and clean for a magazine. Please let me know if you’re interested. This blog A fool and his beer is great, please keep up the good work. There are few active beer blogs online and this is one of them.
