    Gene thank you so so much for everything you've put into this place over the last five years (I still can't believe this has been a thing for five years). This has been an intense and fulfilling experience for those of us on the other side as well. This has been the best online community I've been a part of, and have been so lucky to make so many great friends here. Looking forward to what Keith and Lorena will have in store for us!

    Haven't been active in HBT for years, but will we be seeing a change in moderation moving forward? Not gonna lie, I kinda like this place as it is.

    Gene Thanks so much! You will always be TalkBeerGene in my heart...

    Yeah I remember getting a temporary ban on HBT for something back in the day.

    I can't speak for TxBrew and Yooper, but this is one of the reasons I felt so comfortable with this decision - I think the intent is very much to ensure that the things that make TalkBeer as special as it is are preserved. TalkBeer and HBT are obviously two very different forums with different missions, so I would expect very different styles of moderation.

    When does the magazine come out? Make sure to save some back issues and offer them as "vintage" down the road.













































    But seriously thanks for the hard work on the site Gene and everyone else involved. It's a crazy place but one of the best on the internet for us a̶l̶c̶o̶h̶o̶l̶i̶c̶s̶ beer nerds.

    Yeah, if this place turns in to HBT v 2.0 I might have to bounce.
