Nick – Beer Guide

Tell us about yourself!
I moved to Washington D.C. in 2009 from Minnesota, and never left. I’m passionate about teaching others how craft beer brings out the best in all of us. I love visiting old and new breweries within the area, especially with my wife, son, and dog.

Favorite beer(s)?
German Dunkel; Hazy IPAs; Creamy Stouts; Farmhouse Ales.

What’s your favorite story from a City Brew Tour?
I was able to work with someone who did not necessarily enjoy beer; however, trusted that I would suggest the right ones for them. By the end of the tour, they bought a case of their favorite beer, and became a new lover of the craft.

What do you love most about your city’s beer scene?
There is a strong sense of friendship and family. It feels like you are in that family even if you are not local to the area.

Why do you love being a Beer Guide?
I love teaching others about the different styles of beer, and finding something they may enjoy that they normally wouldn’t have tried.

If you were an animal, which animal would you be?
An orca.

What’s an interesting fact about you?
I have traveled all over Africa.
