The Sommbeer Team
David Barrett, Founder
I’m an engineer that can speak in complete sentences (self taught). Family focused. I never met a stout or porter I couldn’t finish. Homebrewer and closet wine guy.
John Fahrner, Senior Editor
A simple man. I like Dogs, Beer, & Hockey. Senior Editor and Michigan Brand Ambassador for Sommbeer
Don Manfredi, Staff Writer
Business Professor, Martial Artist, Friend of Most Things Fermented, Detroit, MI
Matthew Powers, Staff Writer
I’ve led an eclectic life, traveled many miles, and usually found a way to enjoy a beer or two along the way. I’m a writer for Chilled Magazine, Chicago Tribune Media Group, Sommbeer.com, and soon Thrillist-Chicago. As you can see, I’m a writer and beer nerd. I’m also a historian. In fact, I have a Master’s in Written Communication and soon a Master’s in History (fall 2016). I’m also a die hard Chicagoan, sports fanatic, lover of great cars, and a former tornado chaser.
