New Design

As I mentioned in my previous post, I’m fiddling around with the design and structure of Anti-Hero Brewing. I initially tried to have this page with a dark gray background and darker gray sidebar, but some SNAFU within WordPress reverts the sidebar color to off-white. I didn’t like how that looked so I stopped fighting WordPress and reverted to the white-on-white default for the page.

I’m curious what people think of the current design; after all, you’re the ones reading this so your preference is pretty important.

The Year Ahead

I hate things like this. I hate year-in-reviews (except The Onion‘s) and I hate Top 10 lists. You want a top 10 list for this blog? Just keep scrolling down until you’ve read 10 posts. I’m a writer (ha!) not a curator, and this is most assuredly not Buzzfeed. I do, however, want to know what everyone liked and didn’t like about this blog in its first few months of existence. The poll above (which hopefully works because it’s been giving me trouble) as a few options to choose from. I made it multiple choice so if there’s more than one option you agree with, you’re free to choose it.

More Beer Reviews

This has become the majority of the posts I’ve written on this blog. Sometimes I think there’s too many of them, but I know some people actually enjoy/read/use them.

Longer Beer Reviews

I also know that some people just read them to kill time at work; so I can try to make them longer or…

Shorter Beer Reviews

…I can make them shorter. I know a lot of reviewers online use a much shorter format than I do.

More About Homebrewing

This was the initial intent of this blog, but since I don’t homebrew every week (but do drink every week), the brew-specific content is rare slim. I do, however, read voraciously about brewing so I’m sure there’s more material to mine there.

More General Beer-Related Posts

Thinks like the difference between stouts and porters; BJCP style breakdowns; thoughts on the “craft beer bubble” and so on. I follow a bunch of great blogs that talk about these topics.

More Random Ramblings

I’d tell you but that would ruin the surprise.

See you in 2014.
