Why "Brewed Journey?"
“Brewing” is an interesting to me. The common definition is to prepare a liquid by steeping, infusion, boiling or fermentation.
However, the definition I like the best is..."in the process of forming."
As applied to people, we are always in the process of forming through the choices we make and our experiences.
Over the years, I’ve worked as a potato picker, newspaper route boy, soybean walker, hay maker, McDonald’s grillman, grocery stocker, assembly line worker, security guard, lawn and garden worker, paralegal, attorney, freelance writer, newspaper reporter, small business owner, and caregiver.
I have traveled extensively, often by foot, including a thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail in 1996. I’ve been a beer homebrewer for over 30 years. I home roasted coffee for many years, eventually opening a commercial roastery and coffee shop. After selling that business, I continue to roast and brew coffee for the fun of it.
If anyone needs to reach me, I am easily reached through the comments of this blog or via gmail, using the name brewedjourney.
