Brian – City Coordinator & Beer Guide
Brian is a lifelong native of Pittsburgh and has been home brewing since 2011. He loves everything about beer, especially the brewing process. In his free time he enjoys watching TV series & movies. Brian also likes exploring the outdoors with his wife. He loves hearing a good yinzer accent and is currently searching for the best pizza in Pittsburgh – or at least that’s his excuse for eating pizza as much as he does.

Eric has been a beer enthusiast since the very beginning of the craft beer explosion in the United States. One of the original contributors to the Malt Advocate magazine tasting guide section, Eric still has a half case of early 1990’s Thomas Hardy’s Ale and the 1994 vintage Sam Adams Triple Bock in his basement!
Eric L – Beer Guide
When it comes to beer, Eric doesn’t discriminate. He’s pretty happy with a top ranked Belgian beer or a 24 oz can of Miller High Life. He’s been home-brewing for two years now in an attempt to make never before seen beers, such as a jalapeno and cactus pear beer, or an Indian Indian Pale Ale (and IPA made with Indian spices). His top three favorite beers are Innis and Gunn’s Spiced Rum Finish, Gulden Draak, and Victory’s Golden Monkey.
Jesse – Beer Guide
Jesse has been a hardcore advocate for the craft beer world every since turning 21. The only things that outmatch his love for beer are hockey and sloths! Jesse is relatively new to the home-brew scene, putting out his first batch in fall of 2018. Jesse’s current three favorite beers are: North Country Buck Snort Stout, Dogfish Head Indian Brown Ale, and Allegheny City Brewing Double Black Diamond.
