Welcome to The Thirsty Beagle, a beer blog on NewsOK.com. Here you’ll find beer news, reviews and links covering all things brew. I’m Nick Trougakos, a Metro editor at The Oklahoman by day; a beer enthusiast by night… and day. In the header of my blog, I reference a journey to clean, crisp and refreshing enlightenment. So what exactly does that mean? Put simply, I feel like I know quite a bit about beer, but I’m searching for more. I’m searching for the day I can call myself — dare I say it — a beer expert. I don’t pretend to be one right now, but I am a guy who appreciates beer for the variety, flavor and history of the drink. So why shouldn’t I pursue the frothy heights of beer mastery? Join me on the journey. Share your thoughts or share a review. Hope to hear from you soon.
