What is your favorite type of beer?
My favorite type of beer is whatever is in my hand. I go back and forth but usually come back to English Ales. I generally enjoy nice, easy drinking beers under 5%. Though I like a lot of styles such as saisons, IPAs, and lagers.
What interested you in craft beer?
In college, my favorite professor was teaching a course called "The Biology of Beer" so I enlisted in the class when I was 19 years old. In New York you can drink under the age of 21 if it is for religious or educational purposes. To learn a little bit more about it, I went to Brewery Ommegang and did the tour there. This really opened my eyes to what craft beer could be!
When did you move to Tahoe?
I moved to Tahoe this winter season, on December 11, 2016. Rockclimbing ultimately brought us to Tahoe as we wanted to be closer to the mountains.
