Welcome

About Me

I guess you might say that I really like beer. And if you like beer, we probably have a lot to talk about!

Welcome to Brewscapes! I'm Brian and I really appreciate you stopping by. I am a Certified Cicerone, and a member of the Guild of Beer Sommeliers and North American Guild of Beer Writers. I’m also a homebrewer and a provisional BJCP judge.  

Beer is so many things: a global business worth hundreds of billions of US dollars, a meticulously crafted work of art, a finely engineered product of chemistry and biology, a surprisingly important actor in our shared history, and the social glue that binds us as a community. But most of all, beer is fun!

I’ve crafted my consulting business to inspire my clients to learn more about beer in all of its amazing diversity and complexity, from the creative genius driving the explosive craft beer scene in the US to the timeless brewing masterpieces in Europe and everywhere in between.

So grab a pint and stay awhile. As the saying goes, no great story ever starts with eating a salad, and beer makes every story better!

What I Do

I offer beer consulting services for breweries, restaurants and bars. You don’t have to worry about your beer list, because I will take care of it. I will build an expertly curated beer list that will pair wonderfully with your food and atmosphere. I will also keep your beer list current as the seasons change and new industry trends emerge. It's summer time. Do you have a kettle sour and a hazy IPA on tap?  You should.

Want to spice up your next corporate or private event? How about a fun and educational custom beer tasting? Let me be your guest Cicerone!

Are you interested in collaborating? I love creating custom beer- focused marketing content and I'm always looking for ideas to work together. I can also write for you!

In addition, I offer full-scope training for certification exams for those who plan to become Certified Cicerones or Certified Beer Servers.
