Help Support BourbonGuy.com

Posted on by Eric Burke

Hey folks, 

As you probably know, I have pledged to keep BourbonGuy.com free from ads or industry influence. This means that almost every review I post was a review of a bottle that I bought. Every event or tour I describe was a tour or event I paid to attend. Every book I review, I paid for. I'm happy to do this. It's a great hobby and I think that I'm able to add, in a positive way, to the general conversation that exists in the Whiskey Community.

But it does get expensive. And I was recently laid off. So I'm asking for help. Don't worry, the site and posts will always be free. But if you get any value from what you read, if I saved you any money on not buying an expensive dog of a whiskey or you found an inexpensive gem you didn't know about or you had fun or learned something, I'd like to ask you to please consider giving a little value back.

Luckily there is a place where people can go to support independent content creators like me. Please go to Patreon.com/arok to pledge your support. You can pledge any amount you want, but I'm asking for roughly 25 cents per article. That's $2 a month. If 2% of site visitors can do this, the site will be entirely self sustaining and the pledge of being ad-free will be easy to keep. Plus all backers will get access to patron-only bonuses like a monthly video hangouts where we share a dram and chat or whatever else I can come up with that is timely and fun.
 

So please go to Patreon.com/arok to pledge your support. Of course, if you don't want to become a patron, there are other ways to help: buy a t-shirt or coffee mug. Share a post on facebook, twitter or google+. Or just tell someone about the site. It all helps. 

I look forward to where this new adventure will take us and thank you in advance,
Eric Burke
