Q & Ale

question and aleWelcome to Q & Ale!

Q & Ale is the place to get your questions about beer answered.  Simply use the “contact me” link at the top of the page to submit a question.  If it’s one I can answer (and is something I think people would be interested in knowing), I’ll research it and create a post.  Additionally, I’ll comb through the list of the more interesting questions that people type into search engines, questions that lead them to I think about beer.

If you’d like to be acknowledged in the answer, please indicate that you would, how you’d like it listed, and include your location in the world, i.e. “Jimmy – Beer City, Belgium.”  If you don’t specifically ask to have your name included, I’ll leave the question as from “anonymous.”
