The Olympics may be over, but that doesn't mean we're not still pursuing our dreams of winning medals in our favorite sport.

He talks his way of planning his entries and the subtle strategy of style choice.
With Session Beer Day right around the corner (April 7th), it's time to visit one of Drew's absolute favorite beer styles - Mild.
