Twitter: @andrewlschwab Untappd: aschwab My craft beer journey started sometime in university when light beer just was not cutting it anymore. I started venturing out to the beer store and buying any 6 pack that I had not had before. This has now continued for ten years. You will see me visiting almost any and every brewery that I can. I have a passion for travel, craft beer, and college football. When I am not drinking craft beer, I work as a manufacturing engineer in Austin.
