I spend an inordinate amount of time writing about beer. As evidenced by the close to 1,000 posts preceding this. Besides the blogging, I’m on Twitter, where my craft beer alcoholism goes “public.” Every Friday, Twitter has this tradition that entails a Follow Friday or #FF tweet that acts as a shout out to your friends.
After a while on Twitter I’ve interacted with a lots of people now, both at the bar or online. My #FF would get pretty lengthy so I thought perhaps I’d do something different – my biggest #FF blog/twitter crossover shoutout thingie. This is in NO particular order. Or region, or anything. Here goes.
@AtlantaBeer – Everyone thinks it’s some alter ego I made up. He’s huge on Twitter, & beer in Atlanta. And my arch nemesis/friend.
@MyAlement – The onion of beer. Someone finally trying to get us to laugh at ourselves. Podcast partner in crime.
@AleSharpton – Another awesome beer guy & writer. Classes up the joint a bit.
@BeerSommelier – He’s like famous & stuff.
@SquirrelStash – Never met him, but he drinks beer, & says it how it is. Downright funny at times. Annoys ding.
@D_I_N_G – Where to begin with this guy. He’s an Englishman trapped in a city he seems to hate, in a state he seems to hate, in a country he seems to hate, in a beer culture he seems to hate. People call him out all the time about session beer, & his thoughts on beer & beer culture. He seems to dislike what I drink, & the stuff I write about. BUT, rumor has it he’s quite the nice guy in person. Plus he knows beer. Perhaps one day I’ll meet him. (Atlanta Cask Ale Tasting?)
@CurtDawsey. He looks like Dwight from The Office. Could write you a 20 page paper on anything you ask in about an hour. Drinks beer, works for distributor. Cool dude.
@restaurantsATL – Loves craft beer. Oh, and restaurants. Skinny guy that loves food & beer. The human body is really weird.
@damunroe – Owns a very popular beer/restaurant in ATL. Knows his craft beer & a nice guy to boot. Very generous in sharing hard to find beers.
@Carny93 – Hockey ref, and beer lover. He’s got a lot of pucks. Real pucks, you perv.
@CraftBeerDesign – Quiet guy that loves beer. Wouldn’t know he’s there unless you look..lol. Find him and buy a round.

@SweetWaterBrew – I love their beer. I annoy Steve for info. They have learned to put up with me. We are so “In like” with each other.
@TerrapinBeerATL – He works for Terrapin. I honestly think he “samples” the beer all day. Just for quality control purposes. Safety first.
@Hotoberfest101 – 2 really funny guys that put on Atlanta’s Hotoberfest. If you ever spend time with them in a car, pee first.
@Catholicdrinkie – She’s Catholic, and a beer drinker. Then she writes about it. I guess God has sins in writing now. Maybe St. Peter is a drinker too.
And that’s just Atlanta. It would take me another hour to cover everybody else, all the bars, & breweries. I’m sorry if I missed someone. Seriously. I’m sorry. Its after 10am. Time for a beer.
