The Thirsty Beagle: About TTB

About TTB

Beer writer and homebrewer Nick Trougakos started The Thirsty Beagle blog in 2008 to cover the growing Oklahoma craft beer scene for The Oklahoman and Nick left the newspaper in early 2015 after more than 12 years in the newsroom. After a short break from blogging, he revived The Thirsty Beagle blog in April 2015.

In 2014, Nick founded the first Oklahoma City Craft Beer Week, organizing and promoting a series of local events in order to draw attention to the growing Oklahoma City craft beer scene. That effort has continued each year since, although in 2018 Nick passed the torch of organizing OKCCBW to the Craft Brewers Association of Oklahoma.

Nick lives in northwest Oklahoma County and in his non-beer-related spare time likes to exercise at the local YMCA branch, play lunchtime pick-up basketball and attempt to dominate in Words With Friends.

He has not won any awards for his homebrewing, but one time received respectable scores from judges on a hoppy American brown ale.
