I live in Phoenix. Sometimes I get sick of the heat, but by and large, I enjoy this city.
My friend Rob Fullmer has a new project that blends those two nicely. It's a new blog; Beer PHXation. Rob and Dave are just getting started, but they're already carving out a niche for themselves. Both are active and talented homebrewers, and champions of many of the Phoenix-based craft breweries.
They recently released a "manifesto" of sorts, aimed at Arizona Restaurant Week. The issue? Loads of attention paid to wine lists of mentioned establishments -- but beer was an afterthought. They wrote about the subject much more cogently than I would have. It's worth a read.
So kudos, Rob. Keep 'em coming! There's a lot of beer-related happenings in this town. Thanks for showcasing all of it!
