David Ackley who is the blogger behind The Local Beer Blog wrote a post on Friday titled – This is What Local is All About. Ackley’s post highlights another post by a beer blogger Bryan Roth titled – A Few Words on … staying local.
One of the categories here on our blog is “What is Local” which is dedicated to post just like these – we’re intersted in taking a look at how bloggers (or journalists, photographers, beer drinkers, etc.) define local.
Here is part of the intro that Ackley wrote for the post:
A recurring theme in this blog is the community aspect of craft beer… But in reality, the craft beer movement is all about the camaraderie that’s happening in the tasting room, or at the bar or restaurant down the street.
While Ackley is writing about beer and drinking beer – I think this intro could just as easily describe my experience of blogging about Pittsburgh. In writing about Pittsburgh I’ve built a comradarie with fellow bloggers, business owners and even local breweries. I hope that if David Ackley ever makes a stop in Pittsburgh I can take him out for a local beer.
