Mr.Beer® Brewer of the Month - Nick Carter (August 2014)

Posted by Sarah Scott on Aug 1, 2014 1:29:00 PM

Congrats Nick Carter - August 2014 Brewer of the Month!

Q:  Please tell us about yourself and how long you have been brewing. 

I am a recently retired Electrical Engineer, and I enjoy making things and experimenting. I grew up in England where beer is closely woven into the culture, from the hops growing in Kent to the pub on every corner.  My earliest experiments with brewing were as a teenager where we made ginger beer based on a yeast and dried powdered ginger culture. This was so popular that the soft drink manufacturers went public to try and shut it down. I also made elderberry wine. As a college student, brewery tours were very popular (we could legally drink at 18). I remember visiting one where the brewing vats were open to the air - foam everywhere.

Congrats Vladimir Putin - April Fools Brewer of the Month!

My name is Vladimir Putin, but my oligarchs call me "Boobs Akimbo" behind closed doors. I have been running Russia for many years now. In my spare time when I am not fishing with no shirt on, or riding horses with no shirt on, or doing some hunting with no shirt on, I do enjoy a nice home brew...with no shirt on.

Mr.Beer® Brewer of the Month - RickBeer (January 2014)

Posted by Sarah Scott on Jan 1, 2014 2:41:00 PM

Congrats RickBeer - January 2014 Brewer of the Month!

Q: Tell us a little bit about yourself...

As you can see by my picture I'm a fan of The University of Michigan Wolverines- GO BLUE! What you can't see in my picture is my rakishly handsome face. When Mr.Beer asked me to be Brewer of the Month, I initially declined – because I haven’t bought Mr.Beer products in well over a year, and because I like the anonymity of the forum (no, my real name isn’t RickBeer). I finally agreed when she said she wanted me to explain my journey into brewing and that I didn’t have to do a nude pictorial (sorry to disappoint you). The $500 worth of Mr.Beer refills was also a great incentive, thanks Mr.Beer!

Congrats Markus Lienau - December 2013 Brewer of the Month!

Q: Tell us a little bit about you.

(I am Da Yooper on the forum) I am an Engineer, Marketer, and now a soon-to-be hops farmer (14 acres with another 10-20 coming on line in the near future), as well as getting into the cherry and apple business plus having about 10 acres of wine grapes.  My wife is one <bleep> of a RN Nurse and we are both looking forward to doing beer and wine related "stuff" in the near future.  We started the hops revolution in Michigan and proud to see many others have jumped on to help make us one of the number one craft beer states.  I owe a lot of my initial education to Mr. Beer.

Congrats Peter Spearing - October 2013 Brewer of the Month!

Q: Tell us a bit about yourself...

I’m an old, tired computer nerd. I keep the computers working for the local Municipal Court, and sundry other stuff as needed. Working for the court is interesting and I like my coworkers, but working there combined with reading history has given me a somewhat cynical view of human nature.

Mr.Beer® Brewer of the Month - Bill Itter (July 2013)

Posted by Sarah Scott on Jul 1, 2013 3:56:00 PM

Congrats Bill Itter - July 2013 Brewer of the Month!

Q: Tell us a bit about yourself...

I am 62 years of age and coasting out of a career as an electronic engineer. I have been a beer lover for at least 40 of those years. My family is of German descent (genealogy is one of my hobbies) and I have apparently acquired the taste for this refreshing brew from my ancestors. During my early exploration of beer styles and types, the brands of Hamm’s, Stroh’s, Blatz, Meister Bräu and Schlitz filled the market shelves. When bock style beers started being introduced in the spring of each year, I soon became a true lover of the craft of brewing.
