4670 and counting. That’s how many beverage reviews the thirsty dudes of thirstydudes.com have written since their founding in 2011. Describing themselves as “a duo of bearded, awesome, thirsty, straightedge dudes who love strange drinks,” the unique site has gotten press coverage from Fox News, Thrillist and The Buffalo News. Beyond being a valuable resource for anyone seeking non-alcoholic liquid refreshment, the hilariously irreverent writing style makes for an entertaining read even if you aren’t thirsty.
One of the those thirsty bearded irreverent dudes is FIFTEEN’s very own Lead Software Engineer Mike Literman, a programmer who joined the agency soon after its inception. A true renaissance man, Mike also founded Root Ink., where he crafts custom woodwork pens, and plays bass in Invisible Touch, an 80s pop cover band with a rock n’ roll edge.
