BottleMark: Bierkast and LA Ale Works

Some folks love beer so much, they can’t have just one cool beer project—they need two. Such is the story of Kip Barnes, a founding member of both Bierkast and L.A. Aleworks.

Bierkast began as a group of beer lovers and exploded into a blog of tremendous energy. It’s the kind of site that puts 99.9% of bloggers to shame—yours truly not withstanding. While it chiefly spotlights personalities and events in the Los Angeles beer world, Bierkast offers its readers much more than that. It’s slick, it’s entertaining, it’s wide-ranging, it’s personal. It’s passion on a webpage.

Nice shout-out on the BottleMark Blog (needs more WP) for my friends John and Kip for Bierkast (where I sometimes contribute) and Los Angeles Ale Works. Incidentally, my wife designed both of those sites!
