I have had this sitting in my inbox for a couple of days and finally had time to post it for Mr. Scott.

Scott Plattsmier
Review #1 – Racer 5 IPA

For my first review, I thought it would be fitting to go with one of my favorite styles. This led me to Bear Republic’s Racer 5 IPA. I had heard many great things about Racer 5, so it had serious standards to live up to. It exceeded all expectations.

As a means to give to you the reader the most balanced view that I can, from time to time I will be featuring guest bloggers to share their thoughts on particular brews. Scott Plattsmier is one such guest blogger whom I suspect will be contributing a good bit of content for your enjoyment. Scott and I met, in a bar in College Station Texas while we were both on a quest to complete the O’bannons Taphouse Beer Tour. We soon discovered that we had similar passions for drinking great craft beer. So without further adieu, here in his own words is Scott.
