About Us

There’s a wise proverb that reads:
“Give a man a beer and he’ll waste an hour. Teach a man to brew and he’ll waste a lifetime.”

Truer words were never spoken.

And so, as a couple of guys who shared a love for good beer and video games, we decided to start a blog. Our goal is generally intended to be one of the following (and sometimes all of the following):

  • Provide highlights of interesting beer news
  • Review beers that catch our eye, and especially our taste buds
  • Attempt to provide beer and gaming pairings
  • Document our experiences in home brewing (we make mistakes so you don’t have to!)

We hope you enjoy what we have to offer. If you ever feel like contacting us for feedback, comments, suggestions, offering us free stuff, email us at v1rgilmdm@8bitbeerblog.com.

Below, you can find out a bit more about those of us behind-the-scenes.
