How did your interest in craft beer begin?
My interest in craft beer ultimately began when I had my very first Double IPA from Solemn Oath Brewery in Naperville, IL. After that magical moment, I knew there was so much more I needed to know about the world of craft beer.
What is your favorite beer style?
If you put a Barleywine in front of me, it’s over. Hands down my favorite beer style. Barrel-Aged stouts are phenomenal, too, followed by Double IPAs.
If you could only drink three beers for the rest of your life what would they be?

Liquid Love Brewing (Buffalo Grove, IL): They’re new to the game but definitely became a top favorite right away! They have been dropping bomb beers (their fruited sour series is dope!), and their can art is fire!
Tell us about your favorite drinking buddy.
My favorite drinking buddy is actually a group of buddies – my Flight Club Member Crew!!! Flight Bottle Shoppe & Tasting Room (Yorkville, IL), opened their doors last summer and created a member club that gets together for a bottle share once a month, and we come to play! I love these people. They are my beer drinking people.
