About Me


I am the Man Can Critic. The name comes from a term used in Schuylkill County to describe a 24 oz can of beer. Pounder of the Week comes from another local term used to describe a 16 oz can of beer. I am a trivia buff and a member of the Trivia team, the RZA, that plays trivia at Dorko's in Mount Carmel almost every Monday night at 8pm. I was encouraged by one of my teammates to start writing this blog and I am continuously trying to improve it and make it more of what people are looking for. Over the past 2 years I have drank a lot of different beers (so many that I have trouble remembering them all) and I'm now trying to add healthy recipes, tour breweries, and throw some health tips to spice things up. If you want to know something or would like something added to my blog just let me know on the Pounder of the Week face book page or drop me an email at pounderoftheweek@gmail.com. Thanks for reading and as always drink responsibly.
