World Of Beer Welcomes The Wench

Published on March 22, 2010 with 1 Comment

Those of you who have been following my blog (and actually reading its content) know that I have immense admiration and respect for the well-known beer writer, Stephen Beaumont of World of Beer (among many many many things).

In fact, I have been known to cite Stephen as one of my mentors and greatest inspirations in the beer industry. Not only is he extremely well-traveled, well write beer expert — but, he is also an awesome person to ‘hang’ out with in real life. Brilliant, yet unpretentious.


Stephen not only played a witness to one of my most epiphytical moments in my beer drinking and writing career, but he was also a key player in the (life-changing) beer experiences of the evening.

Rewind back to May of 2008.

My website was a mere 4 months old. I was a wine connoisseur and restaurant industry guru with an intrigue for beer. A novice at the time, I had no idea what I was getting myself into — and this I learned really fast during my fateful trip to Chicago for the National Restaurant Association Show.

I had many monumental (i.e.: life changing) experiences during those three short days.

For one, I stopped being a vegetarian and returned to the carnivore world that I had left behind in college. But nothing will hold a candle to the beer epiphanies I had while in Chicago.


Long story short, Stephen Beaumont was not only present but he was a key factor in the most memorable and arguably most impacting night in my career as a beer writer and beer connoisseur. It was that night when I decided to make beer my life.

And since then Stephen and his writing has served as an inspiration to me. He is, essentially. my mentor and someone that I aspire to be like one day.

Which brings me to the purpose of this post. I am happy to announce that Stephen has taken me under his wing as the “first official assistant/contributor/social media expert/provider of keen insight” at World of Beer.
