Who is this Sean guy?

There you are standing in front of a myriad of craft beers lining the shelves, trying to pick something better than average for your next party, tomorrow night’s dinner or for the big game. What do you choose?

That is where I come in. My name is Sean and I am your beer guide. I will help you find your way to better beer. This blog will whisk you to breweries across the country and the world, I will give you the heads up on new beers, I will review what I am drinking, I will select great beers for you to sample and most importantly I will share my passion for the great beer that is being made today.

And I am also very proud about highlighting the great craft beer scene in Los Angeles. We many not be Portland or Denver or Asheville (yet!) but the City of Angels has a growing and vibrant craft beer landscape that I criss cross to bring you the best events and beer spots so that you don’t have to search them out yourself.

I have been beer blogging since 2009 and have seen the trends come and go.  Seen breweries come and go and hopefully I have learned a thing or two to pass on to the reader  

Think of this blog as your map and me as your Lewis or Clark. You can either read the blog and try what I have tried or you can contact me via email at beersearchparty@gmail.com and I will let you know what beer will match what YOU will enjoy the most.

Be ADVENTUROUS!!!
Cheers!!!

  1. I thoroughly enjoy this blog. The picture of the Blue Palms sign is classic. That person is quiet the photographer. A suggestion would be to do a bier pairing with novels. Is this something that might be in a future blog????

  2. I have all sorts of tasting ideas and beer pairings. Beer and dessert is one. How temperature affects taste is another. Novels would require some research. Maybe a Hemingway or Fight Club.

  3. Interesting first two suggestions. What Bier country was that picture taken in??? The writing on the glass, it does NOT spell ‘bugs’ does it???

  4. That photo was taken in Paris near the Comedie Francaise. The glass says Brugs. Because there is scant good microbrew in Paris.

  5. Since the birthday of The United States is approaching, does one have an AMERICAN microbrew to suggest for the festive occasion?
    Also, what food pairing would one suggest? Other than the bar b queuing of pork products, i.e. hot dogs, sausages, etc.?

  6. My suggestions for the 4th may be a little odd but here goes. I would start with a salad made with corn and spinach with some great blue cheese and a splash of a berry vinagerette. Then make some sandwiches. Mostly because I do not like grilling when the sun is boring a hole into the top of my head. Then I would finish with apple pie a la mode. Beer wise, I would go with a case of Full Sail session stubbies and a case of Full Sail session black which just got released. Nothing is more American than cases of beer.

  7. I just stumbled across your blog and I hope to participate in The Session for April.

    Also, I’ve added you to the links section on Beer 47 and I was wondering if you would be willing to link to http://beer47.com in your links section?

    Thanks,

  8. Thanks for visiting the site. I have added you to my illustrious links section.

    Please do send in your thoughts on the next session. I am anxious to read what people in the beer blogosphere think about it.

    And I am very jealous of your SF Beer Week activities.

  10. hey, found this via Google … what an awesome idea!

    I decided a few weeks ago that I want to track down bottlecaps from the 50 states, so far about halfway there – all the easy ones: KS, MO, CO, TX, etc.

    Looking forward to reading more of your blog.

  11. Hello, I was watching Gene Simmons show and found out the he has a restaurant, I am a vet and I am a chef. The show was inspiring but it only focuses on the men and women of today and there is not enough focus on the vets of the past. I am looking for work, and at times people wont hire you because you are a vet, There need more focus on the these vets an out let more exposure. Thank You for your support of the military.

  12. Please join The Blank Theatre (a non-profit arts organization, Noah Wyle, Chairman) as we present our fundraiser Hollywood On Tap at Paramount Studios (Streets of New York) on Saturday October 20th. We have 40 breweries (and growing) and 10 food trucks, plus 2 stages of entertainment. We hope you will help us spread the word and that you will be our guest for the event. I have attached the press release.

    thanks!

  13. Hey Sean,

    I just wanted to introduce you to the Craft Brewery T-Shirt of the Month Club at http://www.craftbrewedclothing.com. We support craft brewing by sending our membership monthly brewery t-shirts from around the country. This is national exposure for small craft breweries as well as a revenue stream. It is also an awesome way to build your brewery shirt collection. We offer 3, 6 and 12 month memberships as well as an intro 1-month “try us on for size” membership.

    We have been pretty busy on the beer festival circuit lately. We were at Canfest in Reno and the Chef N’ Brew in Denver in November. We were just at the Phoenix Invitational Brewers Fest (phoenixbrewfest.com) and at the Denver Beer Festivus (imbibedenver.com) this past weekend. Any chance you are going to be at any upcoming festivals?

    We would love it if you would consider doing a post about the Craft Brewery T-Shirt Club. We would be happy to share the post with our FB fans and even do some paid FB promotion of the blog post. It should help drive some traffic to your site and help increase your fan base.

    Let me know if you think we may be able to work together,

    Thanks,
    Josh

  14. I think I can do it… keep in mind that this doesn’t mean one per day. If I drink 6 at the beer bar the first night in Vegas, then that’s 6 towards the 365! It might be tough to cnutinuoosly find new beers in Baton Rouge, though. I see a few trips to Spec’s in Houston in my future.

  15. Great blog- Great insights and heaps of inspirations. Merci beaucoup for taking time to share your brain ponderings Mr.Inman!
    XOXO

  17. Just tried your brats for the first time last night on the grill..
    Pork, white pepper, coriander, and mace.
    They were delicious inside but my husband and I both thought
    the casing outside was too tough.
    I am a real foodie so I thought you might want some feedback.
    They would be perfect if that was corrected..
    Thank you.

  18. I am the marketing director for Alpine Village. We’re getting ready to tap the first keg at our Oktoberfest celebration (the oldest and largest in California) on Friday Sept 12th!

    We are doing outreach to the local craft beer community (including breweries, pubs, and blogs) to invite aficionados to our opening night of Oktoberfest for FREE! Would your site be interested in helping us promote this event (Warsteiner Pils and Oktoberfest as well as Koenig Ludwig Weissbier will be flowing!) In return we will give you free tickets to give away to your readers to promote yourself in whichever manner you see fit!
    We also hope to keep you abreast of other beer related events that we are certain you and your readers would enjoy (Euro and Kraft Bierfest, Tap Takeovers at Alpine, Special Releases etc.)

    Please contact me for information on our VIP tickets for the event, and let’s let the good times roll in this greatest of beer-inspired events- OKTOBERFEST!

    Danke! (Thanks!)

  19. Hello, Sean!

    My name is Drew Dillman, and I run a website and video interview series called Craft Conscious, (http://craft-conscoius.com) where we connect beer lovers, brewers, owners, distributors, and homebrewers by discussing the business of beer — a look behind the curtain — with over 80 guests to date!

    I’m writing to explore any opportunities of working together; whether I write a guest post for your site or give an interview on topics that your audience would find interesting! I’d also like to interview you for our program to capture your insights on craft beer and drive our customers your direction.

    Once again, any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated. I know you are a busy person, so thank you in advance for checking out the site and please let me know if there’s any questions you have.
