As you travel through your world of beer, you may find yourself wanting to share your experience with others. The BN Army Blog is your place to do that by submitting articles about your festival experiences, report on beer news that you've scooped, or share a brewery tour you've taken. Think of it as a place to be creative and allow the reporter in you let the beer speak to the rest of us... Go ahead, it's easy... but keep in mind, the world is listening so play nice and respect beer!
