About Me


My name is Justin, and I love craft beer. It really started many years ago, when my father stocked our fridge not with the bastions of the American beer scene--Bud, Coors, Miller, etc.--but with Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.

I wasn't a huge fan of Sierra Nevada. Heck, I've just recently started to really dig MOST super-hoppy pale ales. But I knew even 15-20 years ago that there was so much more to American beer than the endless parade of pale lagers I see during football commercials.

A Pennsylvania native, my love of craft beer REALLY exploded with my move to Columbia, South Carolina nearly 10 years ago. Upon arriving here, and discovering craft beer bars such as the Flying Saucer, along with more recently-opened joints like World of Beer, and Craft and Draft, my beer horizons were opened exponentially, and I am glad to have started the journey through the world of craft beer--a journey that will never end and is always full of new discoveries and surprises.
