Sam – Beer Guide
Just your average beer nerd that listens to pop punk, can’t grow a beard, and talks to strangers in his free time. Sam likes long walks through the wilderness especially when there’s a few (read: many) good beers waiting for him at the end. When his nose isn’t buried in a textbook, you can better believe that it’s looking for the flavors in whatever beer he’s drinking. Fun fact: Sam has had multiple professors tell him that if being a doctor doesn’t work out he should consider stand up comedy (He’s not sure if that’s a compliment or an insult).
Favorite Beer: Impossible to pick just one but The Alchemist Focal Banger, Weyerbacher Sour Black, and Bells Two-Hearted
