What do you draw inspiration from? Without a doubt I have a lot of people who inspire me: friends, family, loved ones. To me they are the ones who constantly get my mind ticking by asking me just the right question at just the right time. They are also the ones whose excitement and passion rekindles my own when I feel burnt out. Another great source of inspiration for me might sound weird, but it's boredom. After spending several years looking at beer in all the ways people usually do, you start to think outside the boundaries and move from similar blog posts that everyone does into territories that haven't been talked about as much, or at all. Finding that unique idea and rolling with it is just a thrill. It's an even bigger rush when you pull it off. The last inspiration, of course, is beer itself. It's a drink that has been around since the early days of civilization. Beer has been the beverage of choice for royalty, slaves, peasants, gods, hard workers, executives, low class, middle class, upper class, and many other groups I can't think of right now. It has helped end disputes (as well as cause some), has been a peace offering, and a way to break the ice to start lasting friendships. To me beer is a common factor for us all, the one drink that humanity can sit down together and laugh over. To top all that off, despite thousands of years of it being around, we're still finding ways to make different beers. It makes one want to raise a glass, put your eyes towards the beautiful color of the beer you're currently drinking, smile, and say "look at you."
