I Love Beer Blog returns from the dead, sort of

So I never really made an official announcement that this blog was dead, but obviously, it has been, since I haven't posted in a million years (four, actually).

But ILB is risen from the grave! Well, sort of. It's unlikely I'll post much original material here in the future, as I'm at a point in my life where I just don't have time for writing unless it comes with a paycheck.

However, I'll use ILB to alert folks to my paid beer-writing endeavors. I have been hired as the freelance beer writer for Rock & Vine magazine, a guide to "Good life in the Texas Hill Country." My first beer article for them came out this past fall - a round-up of several Hill Country breweries. It is an admittedly incomplete guide - so many keep springing up that it's nearly impossible to keep track, and a comprehensive one would have taken up the entire magazine. This is a golden age for Texas craft beer lovers!
