My venture into the world of beer began in Newtown, PA at an establishment called Isaac Newton’s back in 2007.  There, at the urging of my cousin, I drank a Samuel Smith Oatmeal Stout.  I haven’t looked back since.  After running a craft beer blog and podcast for a number of years I found myself finally working in the industry.
