But we will remain a neutral party as all paid people in journalism do - because we're journalists here. We promise to continue writing only objective stories that are thoughtful, well-researched, and completely free of bias - about the beverage that gets you drunk.

We're in talks about moving to Belgium as it would put us closer to our new overlords - but I've been told that Belgium is not in America and I'm not sure I'm down with that. But I promise that even from a remote location will we be able to cover the Kansas City beer scene at personal level - it'll be like we never left.
So, please excuse us while I go find out how many Belgian Doubloons it will take for me to fill the swimming pool I'm having put in my backyard.
