A quick search on WebMii.com revealed this Other Josh Oakes.
I particularly liked this part at the bottom:
Everybody loves a beer writer! Television fishing program hosts, on the other hand…
I thought it funny though, that Draft Magazine is asking “Who’s Your Favorite Beer Blogger?” and Oakes is not mentioned. Personally I think he’s more insightful than those who have shout outs. But I’m biased so I won’t vote. Looking at the responses (which are also biased towards Americans), I think it may be due to the fact that we are getting old. The younger generation of beer enthusiasts and bloggers are in another world, and one I cannot always relate to.
