About The Author
Going to breweries and enjoying great beers is just what I do. I've been doing it for years. I got so excited about it that I started brewing my own beer. Then I got even more excited about it and became a Certified Cicerone®. If you don't know what that is, a Cicerone® is to beer what a Sommelier is to wine. So, a certified beer geek? Yes! However, beer doesn't have to be stuffy, snobby, hipsterish or intimidating. It's beer! It's meant to be fun, and learning about it is not only fun but can lead you to a deeper enjoyment of the world's oldest ice breaker. This is exactly what I set out to do when I launched ATX Beer Bus. I want to share my knowledge of and excitement for craft beer with each and every one of you!
