    I am a botanist by occupation and a longtime home brewer. I love traveling and sampling beer. My home state is Michigan but I have lived in Massachusetts for ten years now. I have a strong affinity to Belll's and Founders having grown up in Grand Rapids. My first visit to Bells was in 1983, it was just a small place then. Recently I have enjoyed the uprising of Short' and Brewery Vivant. I have business in Belgium so travel and sample beers when in Brussels ! I also enjoy my local pub Offshore Ale here on Martha's Vineyard. Superb beer, fresh and nuanced! Beer = Yum!;)

    I teach a course on the Botany of Beer, outlining the constituents of beer and how they relate to the taxonomy and plant relationships, plant families, and their cultivation. My partner and I have taught mainly at Botanical Gardens and Arboreta, always selling out the classes. Its not a drunkfest, but a serious course, with mini-pours and style samplings. Much of it is about origins, and we hope to give people a a real experience which leaves them with a greater appreciation for the green world, and the gifts it brings.
