Craft Beeris our passion
“A fine beer may be judged with only one sip, but it’s better to be thoroughly sure.” ~ Czech Proverb
There are many beers in the world, and many tastes when it comes to beer. Here at The Craft Beer Diaries, however, there’s only one beer worth talking about, and that’s the beautiful world of craft beer.
Our goal here is simple – to share the best in local craft beers and brewing from all over the world. We’ll talk to brewmasters, fellow craft beer fans, home brewers, and more.
We’ll also share some of the best beer festivals, tastings, brewmaster dinners, and other community events, so you can meet up with fellow craft beer lovers near you.
Good beer. Good people. Good times. Because isn’t that what life should be about? Cheers!

A marketer by trade, Sheldon has been exploring beer since before he probably should have. He can’t go to a new town without sampling some of the local brews available and is usually willing to try anything new and exciting just to say he did it once (beer wise that is). His belly is a living testament to that. He’s pretty much over lagers now.

In addition to being a beer lover, Allie is a nerd who loves to read, bake, travel, and eat; she also has a killer sock collection. Allie and her husband, Tim, have been known to base travel destinations on the number of local breweries. Her favorite beers are browns, sours, citrusy IPAs, and anything tart and refreshing
Sam’s love of beer is an extension of his love of, well, all things alcoholic. From fine aged wine to single-malt Scotch to expertly crafted beers, his only prejudice is quality; life is too short to endure poor quality beer. A proper footy fan, favourite beers are strong Belgian Ales, Stouts, and Porters.
Olivia is a full time hop head focusing mostly on IPA’s, however, she also can be found drinking sours, stouts, pale ales, and – on rare occasion – ales. Olivia spends her time reading, playing video games, and listening to records. Follow Olivia @olivevinylandbeer for beer, records and more!
