Keegan: "Sobrewity.com was a "secret project" of sorts ..."
"I stopped drinking alcohol 4 years ago for health reasons, it was messing my life up and I didn't need it anymore. In early 2019 I began drinking non-alcoholic beer and was surprised to find that there is now a wide variety of really good tasting non-alcoholic options for people who like the taste of beer, liquor, whatever, but may not be able to drink beverages that actually contain alcohol for health, religious, or other reasons."
"Sobrewity was created because there aren't really specialized non-alcoholic beverage review sites out there these days -- it sucks, you have to trawl through apps like UnTappd and try to decipher which reviews were written by sober people, which were written by guys who were pissed when they realized they were accidentally drinking a non-alcoholic beer ... the review scores are all skewed and almost all of the beers have ratings around 2.5 out of 5, which is totally useless."
"Sobrewity was initially envisioned as a podcast, and I think that there's still a definite possibility that I will incorporate a podcast element to the website but for now I am working with a group of drinkers and non-drinkers alike to create curated, succinct, honest, accurate, written reviews of non-alcoholic beverages."
"With so-called 'Dry January' right around the corner it seemed natural to put the website together and launch it right before the new year..."
