Who We Are


We, here at BeerBarrel Sports, are four friends with varying interests in sports. With the idea from one member of the group to start their own sports news website, BeerBarrel Sports was born, and it is what you see before you today. Though a small start-up website, the ultimate goal is to build BBS into much more than just a project. We want to become one of the leaders in reporting what’s important in sports, and we hope to eventually reach that plateau.
