I am a former chef and consider myself a collector of flavours. I love pairing and matching my beer with my meals.
FOR CANBIFs 2018 - Really want to try anything from Hudson Valley. Also looking for anything from New England (Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut). I'm pretty well stocked on Stouts, Barleywines, and Porters at the moment so am looking for some summer left over perhaps? Especially if they are in the IPA family.
Genre-wise I love anything that starts with the word "Imperial" especially Stouts/Porters top my list. Being surrounded by West Coast IPA - I really enjoy East Coast IPAs more and any kind of DIPAs, TIPAs, DDH, etc... But I am really open to try any style - you never know what you are going to find! Lambics, Sours, and Farmhouse are great... but I tend to put lagers and pils at the bottom of my interest list.
I love trying the weird and wonderful - Rogue's Voodoo Donught series, and Funky Buddha's Maple Bacon Coffee Porter for example. Anything with added flavour components - fruit, nut, coffee, chocolate, peanut butter, coconut, chilis, etc...
I have a Master of Fine Art degree in painting and design. Beer label design is actually what got me hooked into craft beer. (Dang that new Driftwood Old Cellar Dweller label!) So the draw of bottle and label design usually plays a role in my decision to try a new beer as well. If you see a wicked label - that's good enough for me, even if the beer ends up being lack lustre
(btw.. you can look up my doppleganger "the Other" Jon Corbett on Untapp'd his handle is "PiR8-Pugwash" - we actually work at the same campus and have the exact same name (middle name too!) crazy.)
