Sam – Beer Guide
About: 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

Chuck – Beer Guide
Chuck is a lifelong Philadelphian who finished college in the mid-80’s and found a city without a single brewery left. Since then he has been pleased to see Philly grow its brewery population into the dozens. A longtime bartender, he now spends his days wrangling dogs and his nights wrangling beers.
His favorite brews include Ommegang Hennepin, Rodenbach Grand Cru, Dock Street’s classic Summer in Berlin and his first love, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.
