What got you interested in beer?
There are two events in my life that helped to usher me into the world of craft beer. The first took place while I was an engineering student at Ohio University in the mid-90s. A friend brought a case of Pete’s Wicked Ale to a party and I tried one. It had flavor, body, a real attitude. I had no idea beer could taste like that and from that day on, I began dabbling in craft beer. Sam Adam’s, Anchor, Bell’s. Nothing too serious, but never light beer again. It wasn’t until 2008 that I went full beer geek. My wife bought me a homebrewing kit for Christmas and I was hooked. It’s been over 10 years and I’m still homebrewing. Nothing has done more for my understanding and appreciation of beer than actually making it myself.
What is your favorite beer?
I suffer from craft beer ADD. I don’t have a favorite beer and even my favorite style tends to change frequently. Because I like to try as many new beers and styles as I can, I rarely drink the same beer twice. My motto is I’ll try anything once, and that’s actually how I got turned onto the world of sour beers. It started with a gose and now I’m a full-on funky beer guy. American wild ales, mixed culture fermentations, barrel aging. That’s sort of my thing for now. Speaking of which, get some beer from Ohio’s Little Fish Brewing into your mouth. They’ll change your life.
What would you like Northeast Ohio to know about Beer?
The northeast Ohio beer scene is booming. In 2018 there were over 50 breweries in our area alone! That’s why I truly believe that there is a beer out there for everyone. That’s why, when I hear someone say to me, “I don’t like beer,” my response will inevitably be, “That’s because you haven’t tried the right one yet.”
What makes Beerhead special?
Beerhead is more than just a craft beer bar with good grub (get the Barbarian pretzel, trust me). Beerhead is an attitude and a culture that centers on great beer and community. Good beer and good people. We’ve got the perfect atmosphere to bring both of those things together. What sets Beerhead apart from everyone else is our intense focus on bringing in only the best craft beer, often beer you won’t find anywhere else, and presenting it in a way that showcases the skill and hard work of our brewery partners.
Anything else? Anything quirky and fun?
