Hey! I'm Mandy, I'm an Advanced Cicerone® and a National Homebrew Competition Gold Medal Winner, and I'm here to talk to you (and your friends and your family and sometimes your dog) about beer. Not just making it, not just enjoying it, but traveling halfway across the world with it, celebrating with it, learning about it, and loving it even more! My goal is to share the joy that food and beer bring me, and to, hopefully, inspire others to learn more about the beers they buy, drink and enjoy.  

I also want to share beer-adjacent things I love that make cooking, traveling, brewing, and well, life, a little easier and a lot more fun.
