“I DRINK NO CIDER,
BUT FEAST ON PHILADELPHIA BEER.”

–John Adams, in a letter to his wife Abigail

My name is Jack Curtin. I write stuff. A lot of what I write is about beer, hence the name of this blog. But there’s more, as you will see. Somehow I’ve made a living in this curious fashion (sort of a living might be more accurate). It’s worked, so let’s not talk about it any further and risk  jinxing me. I hope you’ll find enough interesting going on here that you’ll hang around and maybe even join in the conversation. Blogs may be yesterday’s news in today’s social media milieu, but we ain’t going quietly.

“Malt does more than Milton can
To justify god’s ways to man
Ale, man, ale’s the stuff to drink
For fellows whom it hurts to think
Look into the pewter pot
To see the world as the world’s not.”
–A. E. Houseman-
