Hi, my name is Paul Rayner aka Mr Fueled by Beer, and I am blogging from Reading, UK. Disclaimer: I don’t take this seriously so neither should you. However if you’re into real ale, public transport, walking, and occasional irreverence, read on…
This all got started back in 2010 in Seattle, USA after I found myself living the life of “that kid in the candy store” people always talk about over there.
A couple of years earlier I had moved my family from Florida to the Pacific Northwest knowing nothing about the region’s leading role in America’s craft brewing revolution.
At that time, for the first time in my over 20 years living in America, three of my interests came together in perfect union: craft beer, public transport, and walking, in no particular order. Thus my premise for Fueled by Beer was born.
By the end of 2012 I had walked hundreds of miles, ridden countless buses, trains and ferries, and visited the vast majority of Washington State’s craft breweries that are located within a 100 mile radius of Seattle. There were also visits to breweries further afield, notably in Portland and San Francisco, and in the end the total number of breweries I visited was fast approaching 100.
The end came in January 2013 when I bade farewell to Seattle and all of its hoppy greatness. I relocated my family back to the UK, back to my hometown of Reading, and a new chapter in the Fueled by Beer saga began: Fueled by Beer UK…
Reading, UK, March 2013.
