I can answer all questions about beer, the brewing process, ingredients, history, styles, glassware & serving temperatures, beer & food pairing, cellaring, the craft beer industry and much more. The only area in which I'm wholly unfamiliar (but still able to find out through direct, personal inquiry) is the purchasing of large-brewery equipment.
I've been involved with craft beer, in one regard or another, for almost 2 decades. I've taught craft beer courses at Emory University, I'm a BJCP Certified Judge, an Administrator for RateBeer.com (arguably, the largest beer website/database in the world, with over 100,000 members) and have been interviewed by ABC News, CNN, NPR, the Washington Post, FOX Business’s Cavuto Show, TheStreet.com, the Associated Press, the Houston Chronicle and many others. I'm an award-winning homebrewer, with multiple ribbons won (including the AHA’s National Homebrew Competition), and owner of one of the largest, most robust and comprehensive beer cellars in the world. I write the “Ask Beer” column for Beer magazine, “Beer Talk...From the Wings,” for Hooters Magazine, the quarterly beer column for In The Mix magazine, a beverage-oriented publication that reaches such hospitality industry establishments as The Four Seasons and Four Points Sheraton, and “Ask the Beer Sommelier,” for Atlanta’s Finest Dining magazine as well. I've been hosting craft beer tastings since the 90’s, and am truly privileged to call some of the most accomplished brewers and beer aficionados in the world, friends.

Hi Paul, I'm familiar with those old Bevadors...very cool and retro. That said, I don't really think they have as much value as "beer collectibles," as they do antiques. As a collector of all things
Hi John, Well, Schlitz has been owned by Pabst since 1999 and is now "contract brewed" by Miller Brewing Company (MillerCoors). But if you think that's confusing, get this; Pabst (the owner/producer)
Hi Barry, Sorry about my tardy reply, but I've been extremely busy with my launch of Beer AID®. Now, I'm sure I've seen glasses like this before, but honestly can't remember exactly where. I have
Hi Randy, This is a great question. And the answer is...yes and no! But you may have to work a bit to piece together the puzzle. While there is no specific guide or chart outlaying all the specs
Hello Joan, Honestly, in all my years working with craft beer, this is the first I've ever heard of "non-debittered brewer's yeast". Typically, brewers use the species of yeast, called Saccharomyces
