    Hey Dustan, I enjoy your blog and really appreciate your efforts to keep us all up to date about what’s going on in BC beer. I wonder, though, if you should put your by-line “by Dustan Sept” on posts that are re-prints of brewery press releases. It might make sense journalistically to make a clear distinction between your writing and the companies’ stuff.

      Thanks for the suggestion. The “about the author” shows up by default. It is an easy change though and we will take it into consideration with future press releases. The post author will still show up at the top though.

      Feedback is always appreciated and we will do whatever we can to keep all of our content transparent as to what the source is.
