Who is The Beer Philosopher?


The Iconic Symbol of The Beer Philosopher blog and of BREWTHINK, known as, “The Drinker.”


The Beer Philosopher is the moniker for both a popular blog focused on craft and specialty beer based in southern Illinois as well as the nickname of the blog’s author, Shawn Connelly. The Beer Philosopher has been a source of news and information about better beer for over a decade, drawing on a wide range of industry contacts and sources amassed throughout years in the beer business.

While the original blog is inactive, The Beer Philosopher lives on through the Facebook page and through BREWTHINK.
