Areas of Expertise:
Homebrewing, Beer Tasting, & Technology
I started out drinking the same sort of thing you did, Lionshead, Old Milwakee, Yeungling etc. I thought, for quite some time, that I didn’t really like beer. Thanks to the devoted efforts of some truly inspirational drinkers (Meredith among them), I truly understand that I in fact really like beer. Now I approach beer like a 19th century British explorer. I find new ones, take pictures, make notes and collect the trophies for like-minded explorers to “ooh” and “ahh” over. I’ve been managing small businesses for several years and am finally striking out on my own. Bringing the wild safari of craft beer to the masses.
Areas of Expertise:
Homebrewing & Beer Tasting
My interest in craft beer started when I was attending Penn State University and visiting Zeno’s Pub on a regular basis. I began reading, watching videos, listening to podcasts, and learning everything I could about beer and brewing. I have been homebrewing for over 3 years and enjoy pushing the boundaries of beer styles. I helped with Special Events and Concerts at the Appalachian Brewing Company in Harrisburg for over two years and I also worked at Troegs Brewing Company in their Tasting Room and Special Events. These opportunities have expanded my knowledge about how to host tastings and unique events with beer. I am always looking for a new class, book, event or person to learn more about beer!
