I don’t sing. I can hardly juggle. But I can talk your team’s ears off about many facets of beer while simultaneously leading a tasting panel so no one will care about their fallen ears. To have me sign books, discuss beer flavors, compose and conduct beer pairings/meals or simply lead an epic pub crawl, contact me.
