What’s your favorite story from a City Brew Tour?

What do you love most about your city’s beer scene?

Why do you love being a Beer Guide?
I get to connect with and make friends with people from all over the world.

A dog, specifically, my dog. She is spoiled.

If you could have a drink with anyone, living or dead, who would it be and why?
Weird Al Yankovic doesn’t drink, so probably Tom Hanks.

Adrian – Beer Guide

 
Tell us about yourself!
When I’m not talking someone’s ear off about beer, I’m probably hanging out with my wonderful partner and/or our dog Captain Sniffer! We love to go on long walks together around the city or deep in the woods, and usually cap off our time together with a drink at a local brewery. I can also be found spending too much time on YouTube, playing video games, or practicing various instruments around the house. I do also love to home-brew, and I’m always ready to learn something new about beer, so you might say I have a “thirst” for knowledge!

Favorite beer(s)?
Saisons and Mosaic IPAs.

What do you love most about your city’s beer scene?
There is a sense of community around local beer. Every spot feels distinct and the people that work at each brewery are always so cool and super friendly!

Why do you love being a Beer Guide?
Passing on beer knowledge is a big passion of mine. It’s gratifying to be able to not only teach people something new about beer, but even more so to guide someone through a tasting as they discover what styles of beer they enjoy the most. Whether they’re finding a new favorite or just looking to enjoy something more familiar, it’s always exciting handing someone a beer they’ve never had before.

If you were an animal, which animal would you be?
A drunk moose eating fermented apples in Sweden.

If you could have a drink with anyone, living or dead, who would it be and why?
Freddie Mercury. We’d get a few drinks in and sign Bohemian Rhapsody!

What’s an interesting fact about you?
I’m a gluten-intolerant beer guide, but to compensate I brew my own GF beers at home (they’re delicious).

The diversity of spaces and their design.

Why do you love being a Beer Guide?

What do you wish your city was more well-known for?
The food scene! Boston doesn’t get the love that NYC, LA, SF, or other great food cities do, but it holds its own.

What’s your favorite thing to do in your free time?
Read, cook, and enjoy the scenic beauty of New England.

If you could have a drink with anyone, living or dead, who would it be and why?

What’s an interesting fact about you?
I’ve been to 46 out of 50 states.

What do you love most about your city’s beer scene?
The bartenders and brewers I’ve met are so much fun.

Gilda Radner, so she can meet her namesake in my dog. And Dolly Parton, ‘cuz she’s a national treasure.

Rudi – Beer Guide

 
Tell us about yourself!
I’m currently working towards my goal of opening a brewery/brewpub, and I’m enjoying life and work as I do so. I currently working with City Brew Tours as a Beer Guide and with Lord Hobo Brewing as a Packaging Operator. I used to work with Iron Heart, and before that I taught high school science!

Favorite beer(s)?
I tend to go for opposite ends of the beer spectrum, a simple lager like Jack’s Abby post shift pilsner or something really sweet like new park’s blender series.

What’s your favorite story from a City Brew Tour?
Probably my latest tour, I was working with a bachelorette party and I had more fun with them than I do with a lot of my friends! They cut me off to joke around so much I barely got through the history of beer, which I think upset me more than it did them.

What do you love most about your city’s beer scene?
I love that Boston has huge, nationally known breweries here and tiny, homey breweries – and that the tiny ones are usually better!

Why do you love being a Beer Guide?
I get to meet all kinds of people and learn about them, and I get to talk about and learn more about beer. And the pay is pretty good too!

What do you wish your city was more well-known for?
How pretty it is around here. Boston is a great mix of new and old buildings, plenty of nature is in and around the city, and the weather and seasons change so quick you learn to appreciate every moment.

If you could have a drink with anyone, living or dead, who would it be and why?
My dad, he’s a huge part of the reason why I’m into beer and I miss him every day.
