Grateful Hubby started in Nov. 2009 as a food blog. These days I enjoy spreading the word about the burgeoning San Jose and South Bay beer scene – and occasionally beyond – primarily here on this site (since Feb. 2011 and revamped in April 2016 to what you pretty much see now) and The San Jose Blog (since May 2013).

I’ve also written about the local beer scene for Examiner.com (Nov. 2011-June 2016) and Metro Silicon Valley Newspaper and its online site SanJose.com (July 2012-July 2015).

Born, raised and living in San Jose, I’m a college counselor and instructor, family guy and health nut.

You can find me as “gratefulhubby” on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube, and in real life often with my wife Andrea, our kids (aged 8 and 25) and our friends.

Please explore the various tabs – e.g., Beer Writing, Beer Events, Breweries, etc. – and contact me with any updates.

Let me know if there’s a local beer story I should know about; I’ll gladly help spread the word.

I’ve also created pages listing the most popular posts on this site, my ongoing Q & A series featuring many of the stalwarts of the local San Jose and South Bay beer community and some select writeups featuring a bit of San Jose and South Bay beer history.

Prost! Gunbae! Cheers!
