Most Interesting Fact: I was fortunate enough to live and study in Austria for 5 months. In that time I got to experience some of the best beers I have ever had. It was a great feeling being able to explore a beautiful country and culture that was completely new to me. The great history behind their breweries and monasteries was inspiring and gave me the final push I needed to work in the brewing industry.
