Thank You!

What a year 2013 has been!

I am going to admit something to you - when we launched Alcohol Professor in March, I was terrified of the what ifs. What if no one reads it? What if we run out of content? What if we can't find a way to build momentum? What if they just don't get us, and we merely become another "also ran" beverage site that gets sucked into cyberspace like a spilled Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster?

Adam and I made every effort we could not to let any of that happen, but we still couldn't have done it without you. So I'd like to take this moment to thank all of you for checking us out, sharing our articles, commenting, and hopefully trying our recipes and new things in general.

I am also extremely proud of the caliber of writing we've put forth and there's no way we could have grown without the efforts (and editorial patience, ahem) of our talented contributors. Thank you so much for all your hard work! I think I am not the only one who has been saying that they can't wait to read more of it.

Adam and I have some new things in store for 2014 (resolutions are for quitters, these are plans!) and we can't wait to share them with you. Until then, keep sipping on the good stuff and share it with loved ones. Life is too short for mindless swill, don't you think? After all, it would be like "having your brains smashed out by a slice of lemon wrapped around a large gold brick."

Cheers!
