If you've been reading this blog since its start, you probably already know the history and point in this blog. But for the rest here's a little snippet about what the hell is going on, and what the purpose of this blog is.
My name is Eugene, and for my 25th birthday (March '09) I was scraping for an idea for a birthday present from my wife. You see, birthday's aren't a big thing for me like they are for some people. But the wifey wanted to get me something and I was thinking hard about it. That's when I got this idea for a beer brewing kit, but not one of those Mr. Beer doodads; something a little more serious.
I got my first brew kit from Homebrewers.com. It came with an ingredient kit and everything. Once I had that idea for the gift waiting for it was excruciating. I scoured the net for information on how to brew a beer. By the time I got the kit... I was still pretty lost.
I brewed anyway. And brewed. And brewed some more. I started off brewing with a friend Dave when I came up with the idea for this blog. To share my experiences, my mistakes, and my dreams with the readers. Learn from other people's mistakes right? Well you may learn from mine. Soon after I started brewing, I decided that this was my passion, and that someday I want to open up my own brewery.
Well Dave fell off the face of the earth, which is another story entirely. How can I have ATaleOfTwoBrewers... without two brewers? It dawned on me: invite my friend Nick. Nick has been my best and longest friend. Growing up and going to school together has given us a long history. You see, Nick also caught the brewing fever when I started talking about it. So it made sense to invite him on to be the second brewer of ATaleOfTwoBrewers. Nick also happens to be the mastermind of anything that looks good on this page. He is, "how you say," a digital graphics ninja.
So that brings us up to today. I still have the dream to open my own brewery. And maybe someday, after I'm rich and famous from opening up that brewery I'll use this blog to outline a biography. Anyway, thanks for reading, and I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do.
Note from Tantilloon (Nick):

If so, you're in luck! During my recent furlough I wrote a book. For more samples of my writing, check out my humorous guide to writing emails over at my book micro-site.
