Award-Winning Beer, Breweries & Mountains…

In Bozeman’s Historic Brewery District sit 2 incredible, award-winning breweries. Let me show you their beers, offer a peek backstage to see how beer is made — from classic malts, hip hops, and cutting edge techniques — and enjoy pub nibbles on this 90-minute event in a small group setting.

You’ll be guided by a true beer expert. I’m a Master Cicerone (1 of 28 in the world), former Brewmaster, Certified Sommelier, European beer tour operator and a public speaker at beer events around the world. When I’m not on the road, I live in beautiful, beery Bozeman, where I love sharing the great Montana craft beer scene with visitors and locals alike!

I’ve led over 100 beer tours and events in San Francisco, New York City, London, Brussels, Munich, Seoul and Hong Kong. My events are always super fun, combining great information, personality and beer!
