home-brewing-beer-blogWhen I first started home brewing beer I’d never have guessed how many great people I’d meet. It’s amazing how open, friendly and helpful both the home brewing and craft beer community are.

This blog is an extension of that: a virtual handshake to you dear reader. Nice to meet you. I raise a glass of beer and say cheers!

By creating content for this blog I’ve made even more connections with fellow home brewers. I’ve been inspired, educated, criticized and all of it has led me to be a better brewer, brewing better beer.

So welcome to Writer’s Block Brewing, I hope in some way you reach back out to me. Even the simplest comment gives me great energy to keep creating home brewing content.

Be well, brew delicious beer and keep in touch! –Matthew
