    Aug 23, 1990 (Age: 25)
    New York
    I'm a classical cellist currently living in New York City doing my master's degree in performance. I've become more and more interested in beer over the past several years and my appetite for more is still insatiable. I originally was really into ales and not lagers but now I've gained an appreciation for lagers (go Weihenstephaner and Jack's Abby!!). Love wild ales and other funky brews. Above all though, I really am a hophead. I brew my own beer as well- I haven't quite made it to all grain (I'm into partial mash now); that might take a few years when I have a more consistent (and larger!) setup. I try to drink local as much as I can but after moving to NYC from Boston that may be more difficult... If you live in the northeast take advantage of the amazing local breweries! They're all over the place!!!

    Something else that I think is important is that I really try to rate beers according to style and I hope that I keep an open mind (palate, nose, etc.). Cheers!
