Badger Brews

This is my journey through the world of fermented craft & homebrew beverages. Some of the content will be about commercial beers and breweries, some of it will be me homebrewing beverages, and other posts will be about other vineyards, distilleries, meaderies, cideries, and fermented beverages that I can find. This site, Battleshy Youths, used to be my band’s site and now it’s just where I blog. This page is focused on beer and homebrewing and is linked with my Badgerbrews Instagram account.
