Blogging has been something I have been putting off for years.  Finally, it just made too much sense to put my head down and do it.  I expect the majority of my posts in the near future will be about brewing beer.  The end goal is to have crafted a number of recipes that have been inspired by geek culture.  Starting a blog just seemed like a good way to build up that archive, while immediately and continually contributing to the communities I belong to.

Public Bio:

Don A Dehm was born and raised in Iowa, where he was heavily involved in youth activities such as 4-H.  He graduated from Austin Peay State University with degrees in Computer Science and Environmental Geography and minors in Geology and Mathematics.  Don is an accomplished software engineer, producer, and director and has also worked as a restaurant manager and naturalist.  He fills what spare time he has honing his homebrew craft and playing with his family in the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA). He is driven by vision, value, community, and adventure.


Lord Donndubán Ó Domhnaill (Donovan O’Donal) of house Del la Roc hails from the barony of Tir Ysgithr in the Kingdom of Atenveldt and pursues perfection in the craft of brewing beer and mead.  More information about the SCA can be found at
