About Darkbrew

If you’re reading this then one of two things happened, you had a hankering for some beer and Google directed you here instead of to your local Bavarian beer garden, or you happen to be a big fan of Hunters in World of Warcraft. Either way, welcome to the Brew Hall!

Now that you’re here, I’d like to share a little bit about myself. The Brew Hall opened its doors in March 2009, and while it seemed like a clever name at the time, the Brew Hall attracts as many beer aficionados and Oktoberfest seekers as it does WoW hunters.

The original plan was to focus solely on the Hunter class in World of Warcraft. That’s still the plan, but things have evolved over the last six years and my interests have grown.

This site now covers several topics including WoW Hunters, The Hunting Party Podcast, and now Star Wars: The Old Republic, and Star Wars.

World of Warcraft

Hailing from the deepest darkest taverns of the Stormpeaks, Darkbrew is a dwarf hunter (is there any other kind?) who quests, raids, and drinks Darkbrew Lagers with friends (or alone).  He has been in Azeroth since day one, is a defender of the Alliance, has braved the Fargo Deep Mine, and defeated the Blood Fish at Jarod’s Landing.

The Hunting Party Podcast

In August 2009 Euripides and I started the Hunting Party Podcast, a podcast dedicated to Hunters in World of Warcraft. The show quickly became popular and in October we Frostheim from the Warcraft Hunters Unions joined the team.

With the help of our lovely moderator Alisaunder and others, we recorded 200 episodes before going on hiatus in January 2014. In September of that year, I assembled a new cast and the show resumed.

We broadcast live every other Sunday on Twitch.tv.

Star Wars: The Old Republic

Star Wars + MMO = win in my book. My first MMO experience was with Star Wars Galaxies. I did some beta testing in SWTOR, was there for launch, had a brief writing stint with Force Junkies, and attended the Guild Summit in March 2012.

I’m currently a member of the TORWars guild and I play a Mercenary named Strega. I use an army of alts and Crew Skills to turn the GTN in my personal ATM machine.

In WoW I’m very Hunter focused, but in SWTOR I take a more general approach and will write about all things SWTOR.

Star Wars

In April of 2015, I signed on to be a blogger over at The Cantina Cast. I had the pleasure of meeting the site’s founder Mike, and podcasters Joao, Becca and Ashley at Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim.

At the beginning of each month, I will do a Star Wars blog post on their site. I may also make the occasional appearance on their podcast as well. When any of those things happen you’ll hear about it here.

Thank you for all of your support these many years it truly means a lot.
