When I started writing about beer, I had to do it the hard way. The internet was in its infancy and virtually every shard of information I got about beer came from chasing it down, visiting the breweries and talking to the brewers. Of course, I miss the tight-knit connection I developed with our local brewers. I still remain firmly in touch, despite gleaning most of my information from brewery websites, social media and the like. I didn't even have a cell phone back then; they weren't invented yet. Fast forward to today. The internet has made it easier to find information, be in touch and stay in touch.
