  • Friend and owner of twinbeers.com introduced me to the world of micro brew and beer trading. From there I kept tasting and began to study how to brew what I was tasting and enjoyed so much. I've been studying hop additions and flavors, stouts, and wheat beers or whatever requests I get from friends and family.
