Introduction I specialize in exploring, enjoying, researching, and writing about Belgium's unique beers and beer culture, as well as Belgian-inspired beers, breweries and beer bars. Since 1994, I have visited Belgium 25 times, and toured 141 breweries. I have also visited all the Trappist Abbey breweries multiple times, with four visits each at Westmalle and Westvleteren, three visits each at Achel, La Trappe (Koningshoeven), Orval and Rochefort, and two visits at Chimay. I have written for such publications as Ale Street News, All About Beer, Beer Connoisseur, Beers of the World, Beer & Brewer Australia & New Zealand, Beeradvocate, Beer Northwest, BUZE Magazine, CAMRA What's Brewing, Celebrator Beer News, Delta Sky, Draft Magazine, The Gotham Imbiber, Great Lakes Brewing News, and Taps: Canada's Beer magazine. I have also written for the Beer Connoisseur, Beeradvocate and Ratebeer websites. I am a reporter for and contributed to "The Good Beer Guide to Belgium" and "Lambicland" by Tim Webb. I am one of the 43 co-authors of "1001 Beers You Must Taste Before You Die."
