The Spilt Pint Crew

Meet David

I’ve been drinking beer since legally allowed and not a day before — probably. I can still taste that first sip of Rainier. My beer tastes have evolved significantly since then, and I was honored to be invited to The Spilt Pint to talk (bottle) shop with all of you!

I don’t have quite the extensive beer knowledge — or cellar space — as my fellow co-writers, but I did recently complete a successful attempt to buy B4K … so I’m getting there. My area of expertise is outings. I love the brewery experience. Sitting down at the bar, chatting with whomever will talk to me and trying every. Damn. Beer. On. The. Menu. (On a related note, my wife won’t go to breweries with me anymore.)

I’m also referred to as ‘Tin Man’ by Brian and Aaron because of my affinity for tin beer signs, which are currently hanging up all over our tiny apartment. (On another related note, my wife won’t let me decorate anymore.)

I used to be a journalist, but gave that up for a career in real estate. So, I am looking forward to writing, talking and interacting with all of you about where I’ve been and where I should have my wife drop me off next.David
