I am a retired United States Coast Guard Officer. I am originally from upstate New York and now live in central Florida playing as much golf as possible, diving whenever I can and enjoying the ever growing craft brewing business. I've been a beer lover my whole adult life. I've gone through all kinds of phases. Depending on the situation I like everything from the "worst" malts to the 'best" craft beers. Most of all, I really do "Respect Beer".
To keep busy (and because I love it!) I work part time at a major retailer of alcoholic beverages. Although I primarily work as a wine associate I work beer and liquor as our customer load demands.
