About me

Gender MALE
Location Washington, DC, United States
Introduction I am an honest man... who loves good drink. The purpose of this blog is to chronicle the travels and joy of imbibing. I have been enjoying wine, beer and spirits for over two decades. For beer I am a fan of many styles mostly from craft producers. I review beer on beeradvocate.com, my reviews are under the user name smakawhat. I am also a big bourbon whiskey fan. I am a cocktail purist and aficionado of spirits. I love wine to death. I gravitate to mostly new world wines than old, but enjoy just about anything. I gravitate toward bigger reds but enjoy a wide variety and will try every wine imaginable that I can. And of course also enjoy good cuisine, whether it's made in a 5 star restaurant or good old comfort food from a stand. So long as it is good. I grew up watching cooking shows, and cooking programs before it was "trendy", working on absorbing Julia Child, Jaques Pepin, and a heavy dose of Martin Yan and Jeff Smith. As Food TV emerged Chen Kinichi probably became my secret underdog hero. Life is too short, to drink crap. Cheers to you all!
