Brent – City Coordinator & Beer Guide
Of all the terms used to describe Brent’s life, “ordinary” is not among them. A soldier since his late teens, Brent traveled and lived across the globe from Hawaii to the Middle East (and he’s got the stories and scars to prove it). You can find him exploring exotic locales and writing reviews on local craft beers. No matter if you’re up high (he’s a parachutist) or down low (he’s an avid tech diver and surfer), Brent has you covered on all your beer and adventure needs.
