There are many beer mapping projects, you know. Many sensible ones using a variety of innovative and technically challenging methodologies that convey the important information you need to know when you are out and about this planet of ours. This map is not like that.
Here's what I have done. I came across an explanation at a old favorite blogger's site, liked the idea but, as usual, lacked a real sense of purpose yet still had the burning desire so I set up a map for my other blog entitled "The Gen X at 40 Nothing In Particular Map." It's been highly entertaining for a very few people over the hours since I have created it. But now I see that there is more to be done with the idea. Something with greater focus. Not much more focus. Not much focus at all. Sort of the neighbour of focus...down the road a bit. That's what I had wanted to do with this map. Anyway, all those other beer mapping projects focus on names, brewery data, where the bar is, that sort of thing. Yet it is the anecdotes related to beer and brewing that I like the best. Those beery yarns and fish that got away tales that are likely not true, which sit disconnected for years but which still hang about entertaining or at least helping us pass the hours. This is the map for those ideas. That great beer of an afternoon in 1983. The microbrewery that closed after a few months over a decade ago. The place that friends hand that great line for the bouncer just before everyone got the boot.
So, I give you..."A Good Beer Blog's Map Of Many Anecdotes." Play with it. See what you can add. If we have enough anecdotes maybe they will add up to something profound. Maybe.
