A Tribute to the Sommbeer Team Contributors – We’ve grown so much since that first contributor dared to write for this site (@hopscanary 7/24/14). In a very short period of time, we’ve grown into a beer community and now boast a full team of contributors. Let’s keep growing, I’m enjoying the ride. – David

Biking is part of my daily life as well as a passion that I take with me on adventures. And craft beer has challenged me to learn. I am a homebrewer and BJCP Certified Beer Judge. Thank goodness these two passions cancel each other out calorie wise!

I’m an elevator operator for my day job but other than that friends, family, clean good food, cooking, great beer and traveling take up my time. I’m an arts and crafts addict and make some hand knit beer items I sell on etsy.

We are living in and experiencing The Renaissance Period of Beer! The guys here at InTheBeerAndNow™ couldn’t be happier about this Golden Age for craft beer brewers and, more importantly, craft beer imbibers like ourselves! We also know that the only moment we ever have is now. Our mantra is to be in the here and now and to be InTheBeerAndNow™. – the team at ITBAN™ ☮

Jake Hendrix @ Site: Hendrixkeg.com
The Hendrix Keg is the best way to get local beer. Use it like a growler, but the difference is the Hendrix will keep your beer fresh by using a C0₂ regulator!

Grew up in SW Missouri, just moved to Traverse City to help my cousin take care of her daughter. Because of my dad, I grew up going to microbreweries all over the US because he is a fan of good beer. I am a huge fan of punk music and the Red Wings.

Nick Campellone Site: craftbeerenthusiastkcco.blogspot.com
I am Nick Campellone and I LOVE BEER. I am going to be blogging about different beer topics and different beers that I have recently had and enjoyed. I am doing this blog because I love beer and want to become part of the beer industry. I am a bartender that works at a T.G.I. Friday’s. I have recently been trying to get into trying new beers and have found that I love beer and have a real passion for it. I want to get people interested in beer, so I figured what better way then to start a blog about craft beer.
Rick is a consultant in training and development at Fenwick Koller Associates and a college professor in Industrial and organizational psychology. He likes following the local professional sports teams.
