This column is dedicated to those of you who think I write too much about beer. In my defense, writing occupies my hands and eyes for long periods of time — keeping me from grabbing a cold one from the nearby beer cooler.

It also helps that I do most of my writing in the early morning hours, where I mostly consume black coffee — and hardly ever java porter.

But enough about my writing habits, as most of you beerheads know, we are right in the middle of a very busy, very crowded season of craft beer festivals. From Asheville Beer Week to Burning Can Beer Fest — Highland’s Ale Share Beer Fest to Sierra Nevada’s Beer Camp Across America, my cup certainly runneth over.

Actually, my designated-driver wife (God bless her!) and I have taken a little hiatus the past few weeks. Why? Because bigger isn’t always better.
