When it’s been three years since your last post…

Shoot y’all – it’s been forever. Three years to be exact…

I’ll be the first to admit I totally lost my passion for beer for a very, very long time. With moving to Wyoming (um my last post was when I had no idea when that was actually happening) and a change in the beer scene…this blog and this hobby was definitely the first thing to go. It was really, really hard to keep up my interest when Wyoming had to follow up the Indiana and St. Louis beer scene. And when the world introduced us to Bota Boxes (amirite?)

It was also getting very hard not to be self-conscious of the fact that because of the beer available here, I would only be able to drink and write about beers that everyone has already heard of and already had.

Simply put, my life has done a complete 180 since we last talked. But I’ve been craving stouts, and hops, and barley…and of course my cookie cutters, mixing bowls, and measuring spoons for a while now. It’s time to come back home. After a lot of work and so many dog walks, it’s time to get back to The Bake & Brew. Hope to see you back here tomorrow for a brand new Bake & Brew feature of Big Sky Brewing’s Powder Hound.
