Thanks For Reading

Thank you all so very much for reading. The competition is heating up, and its looking like everyone is having lots of fun voting. Thank you so much for sharing, liking, commenting, and following the page. It really means a lot to us. Always be sure to share and bookmark the voting pages to help out your favorite breweries.

This tournament is a lot of work but one of my favorite things to do each year. I love to see the friendly competition between breweries and drinkers / fans of the breweries. Fun to see which breweries share and follow along and its great the competitive but friendly nature that evolves from this competition.

If you see any errors or find any technical glitches, please let me know. WordPress has been a bit buggy, and Facebook has also been doing some weird mobile linking issues, so I’m trying to get all of that hammered out and fixed. Let me know if you see anything.

Thank you all very much for reading and voting.

Was a busy weekend this weekend for The Beer Thrillers family and headquarters. We traveled out to King of Prussia and The Greater Philadelphia Expo yesterday and got to hit two breweries (Root Down in Phoenixville and Tired Hands in Ardmore), and Saturday there was a craft show that Amy attended with her mom in Carlisle, followed up by us getting to do the Tattered Flag St. Patrick’s Day celebration (amazing food!). You’ll be sure to find articles on this here shortly.

And don’t worry – Amy hasn’t forgotten about the blog either. We discussed this on the trip, we are planning on getting her an hour or so carved out every Sunday for her to write, so it’ll be kind of similar to a weekly column for her. So you’ll be able to soon read articles from her on a near weekly basis on Sundays (or maybe til they get posted – Mondays). So you’ll have that to look forward to. As well as all of our other great content on here from all of our great writers like myself – BKline, joshdoncevic, paulrkan, AmyMWolfe, ihackbeer, and many others.

Thank you all for reading so much. Please be sure to like, subscribe, follow, comment, and share. It really helps the blog grow and we greatly appreciate it. Thanks All!

Cheers All!
