Goodbye, for now!

Let me start by saying that I’ve loved using this site over the past few years to share my love of beer with fellow aficionados, or just anyone willing to read my drunken ramblings! 😉 However, due to time constraints and my busy schedule, it looks like I am having to put the GCBS on hiatus for the time being.

In some ways, this is good news. In the past few years, I quit my dayjob as a teacher and became a full-time science and astronomy journalist (for Universe Today). In addition, for the past 18 months, I have been writing a book which – as of last October – was picked up by a publisher! The book is tentatively scheduled for release this September. And since I signed a two-book deal with the publisher, I will be working hard on its sequel for many months to come!

But of course, the downside of all these developments is that I have had very little time to dedicate to beer. My reviews of late have been few and far between, and the sheer number of new beers coming out that deserve reviews has outstripped my ability to keep up with them. Hence, I figured it was best to put the GCBS on hold until I could actually give the current craft beer explosion its due.

Rest assured, I hope to come back to it in the future. Thanks everyone for their interest and support over the years. In the meantime, may your beer be cold, sudsy, and always handcrafted 🙂
