Story
Tagline
Beer columnist, writer, judge and all around curmudgeon
Introduction
I'm a beer writer and judge living in the San Francisco Bay Area in Northern California. I write a syndicated newspaper column, Brooks on Beer, along with the beer blog Brookston Beer Bulletin. I'm also a co-founder of SF Beer Week, which takes place for ten days every February. My latest book, California Breweries North, will be published this August by Stackpole Books.
Bragging rights
I work from home, where I also take care of my two kids, Porter (11) and Alice (9), while my beautiful wife of 17 years carries on with her real job.
