Lee Williams of Hoptopia

You probably have noticed by now that we have a lot of new faces regularly posting on the Mutineer blog. We recently recruited [read: brainwashed] some young, fresh and talented fine beverage revolutionaries to “Join The Mutiny.” And instead of letting these wild kids hide behind their tiny avatars, we decided to put them in the spotlight.

Better known to the fine beverage community as Hoptopia, Lee Williams has taken the beer blogging world by storm since he founded his site, just under a year ago. Lee currently authors the weekly Mutineer Blog column, “Craft Beer Radar.”

    Not a big beer drinker, but your radar has definitely sparked my interest in beer. Learning that there are a lot more styles of beers out there that I didn’t know existed — like that one beer that is a blend and aged in bourbon barrels … that is just CRAZY. I need to find someone to show me more about beer in my area.
