Hey, I’m Josh!
Here at The Kentucky Gent I share my adventures in the men's fashion and lifestyle world. Take a look around and let me know what you think.

Let’s raise a glass to the first official day of New York Fashion Week: Men’s shall we? To celebrate the special occasion I’ve teamed up with LetsGrabA.Beer to show y’all how to properly pour a beer, because I don’t know about y’all, but when it’s this hot out nothing sounds better to me than an ice cold beer.
Pouring the Perfect Packaged Beer
- Place the neck of the bottle or lip of the can over the edge of a clean glass
- Quickly raise the bottom of the bottle or can to a high angle, causing the beer to agitate in the glass
- Pour right down the middle of the glass
- Lower the bottom of the bottle or can to reduce the flow until the foam rises to the rim
- Serve with a 1 inch head of foam
The 4 Step Pouring Process (DRAUGHT BEER)
Start with Beer Ready Glass, and then T.O.S.S. A Perfect Draught Pour
- Tilt/ hold glass at a 45 degree angle when faucet is first opened. Glass should be held 2 inches from bottom of faucet.
- Open faucet all the way with hand engaged at base of tap marker. The beer should be flowing at ~2 ounces per second
- Straighten glass as liquid beer nears the top third of glass. This gentle move creates the foam which finishes off the pour.
- Stop the pour with at least a half to one full inch collar of foam on the beer.
Reminders: Do not submerge faucet at anytime into the glass. Do not engage tap marker at the top. Do not fill the glass to the top with all liquid and no foam.
Tonight I hope you’ll raise a glass (or two) with me in celebration of the revolution of the menswear industry in the states, because I know I’ll be kicking back a few tonight in NYC.

Being the self-employed guy, freelancer, and blogger that I am time is of the essence, and lately it seems that there is never enough time in the day. I’m constantly left juggling personal life and work life while trying to create some semblance of a normal workday, otherwise I’m working from the time I wake up until I head to bed. One of the biggest struggles I’ve faced since taking the plunge into the starving artist life is my schedule or lack there of, but on the flip side of that it’s also been a blessing in disguise.
I’ve never been the best at sticking to a to-do list or writing things down in a calendar, until now that is. Any appointment, phone call, or meeting I have gets put into my calendar as soon as I get the date and time for anything, and the newest addition to my tech arsenal, the Intel powered Dell Venue 8 7000 series, has been a godsend in helping keep me on track.
Besides helping keep me better on track the Dell Venue 8 7000 series tablet with its RealSense Depth camera has helped me take my photos to the next level. The 8 MPixel camera + two 720p stereoscopic cameras enable it to capture and measure all the depth information in a photograph, which in layman’s terms means that the amount of post-editing that can be done is practically limitless. While I may pride myself on taking some seriously stellar foodie shots there’s always one or two things I’d love to tweak after the fact, and with this camera I’m able to do that with a couple taps of my finger.
Since receiving my latest RealSense device I’ve been using it for all of my “work” related activities, whether that be checking out a post after it goes live or interacting on Twitter, and it makes the process of flipping that “off” switch for work SO much easier. Because let’s be honest, we’re all attached to our phones practically 24/7, and if we’re using that same phone for work it’s really hard to turn it off. Now thanks to my Dell Venue 8 7000 series tablet I’m able to create a more finite end to my workday by placing it on my desk before hopping on the couch to indulge in some binge TV watching after a long day.
