In December of 2011, I proudly became a regular contributor here at the KC Beer Blog. In my first official post I told you that I worked for a local beer distributor. At the time, I worked for Central States Beverage Company, Kansas City's largest beer distributor. I didn't advertise that fact, but I didn't try to keep it a secret either. I tried to do my best to bring you honest information and avoid sticky situations. I spent most of my posts listing beer events in the Weekly Bar Buzz. I also frequently wrote about Boulevard. This is Kansas City after all and no brewery is more important in this town than Boulevard. But at the time I did work for the company responsible for selling Boulevard in Kansas City and maybe I should have made that clear to everyone.
So let's get this all out in the open. I am a Craft Beer Account Manager at North Kansas City Beverage Company. I sell craft beer throughout Kansas City, MO and you can see a list of my brands here. I try to write about what's going on here in town, not tell you what beer you should drink. But that doesn't mean I'll never write about the brands I represent and the least I could do is let you know that I sell them.
If you have any questions or concerns about this, please let me know.
