Originally from Pennsylvania, I’ve lived in northern California for the past 25+ years. Currently, I live in Marin County, just above San Francisco, with my wife and two young children.
I've been writing about beer for nearly 20 years and have been involved in the beer industry almost as long, traveling extensively to cover the beer world. I have experience as a homebrewer, enthusiast, author, beer buyer, commercial contract brewer, marketing manager, beer judge and was the GM of a national beer magazine before becoming a freelance beer writer. For the Bay Area Newsgroup, I do a syndicated bi-weekly column, Brooks On Beer, and contribute to their drinks blog, Bottoms Up, along with blogs for RealBeer.com, Beer Therapy, and All About Beer magazine, Beer Soup. I also write about the beer industry at my own website, the Brookston Beer Bulletin and co-founded the Beer Writer’s Guild.
