What is Beer Tech?
The most frequent question any of us have to answer is "What is BeerTech?", or more accurately "What the hell is this BeerTech crap?" Well, honestly, we're still answering that question. It started out as a few friends with common interests -- namely things with engines, moderate BAC levels, and being cheap. Our group comes from all walks of life, but we're all just regular guys who would rather get a little dirty and figure out how to fix something than drop off our cars with a stranger, pay through the nose and hope we don't get ripped off. So that's where we're coming from with this, and I suspect we are not alone. Our type has been around since the first monkey used a stick to get at fire ants, so in this regard we're not special. What we are trying do here is to translate our work into a resource for anyone, like us, who has the will but not the knowledge to get the job done. BeerTech seldom takes the traditional proper" path in our endeavors. We're not UAW workers; we haven't graduated from BMW's STEP Program. Hell, Ian can't even spell graduated, and he went to Wake Forest. But what we lack in skill, or resources, we make up for in pure, unadulterated enthusiasm. Frankly, that's all you need.
