Beer Junkie - Us, just your average every day run of the mill folks who happen to be extremely passionate about all things beer.  We'll share a beer with anyone and won't put them down because they may not like our favorite beer.  We also don't look down our noses or make people feel too stupid to want to expand their beer horizons.  I could go on but I think that you get the picture...
