Me and some bottles.  Hi, how are you?

My name is Andy Couch. In my former life I was assistant brewer at Millstream in Amana, Iowa. I’m brewing on a significantly smaller system right now. 😉

I have also worked in the beer room at John’s Grocery in Iowa City and at Steve’s Liquor and More in Madison, two great places to get craft beer. My duties there included hand selling craft and imported beer. That involves helping geeks and newbies alike find great beer.

I attended the Siebel Institute, where I was classically trained in sensory analysis by Lyn Kruger.
