Need A Good Brew For The Weekend?

Hannibal Matthews_Ale Sharpton-14It's the weekend and if you're in the southern states like me, you're probably out in shorts and a t-shirt running through a park with your dog with plans of eating outside all weekend. We're in the middle of what I can only describe as a heat wave. But even if you're not, there's plenty going on this weekend, namely the NBA All Star Game.

When it comes to making an appropriate selection of beer to drink, as I am no connoisseur as I barely indulge. But when I do, I whip out my cell phone and shoot a text over to my man, Ale Sharpton.

If the name sounds familiar, it's because he graced Makes Me Wanna Holler.com with a list of Fall Beers That Make You Wanna Holler. He has his own blog, writes for magazine's such as Beer Connoisseur and has posted some home-made videos on YouTube. But lately he's been getting some major Internet/social media play and being deemed by most if not all as a certified Beer Sommelier.

At the end of 2010 he did a feature for Thrillist:

And this week he was featured as a Local Find on the ever-growing, moustache-toting, site Scoutmob. To read the full article on his comings and goings and his love of all things brew click here.

Hopefully Mr. Ale will grace this blog once more with his Winter or Spring recommendations, depending on what this weather decides to be. Continued success, Ale Sharpton!
