WELCOME TO CRAFT BEER JOURNEYS
The last 10 years have been spent researching, refining and learning the business of travel, and perfecting the niche of creating beer-themed travel and tours. With the support and encouragement of the Global Institute for Travel Entrepreneurs (GIFTE), Craft Beer Journeys is now a reality, helping craft brewers, their fans, and beer enthusiasts everywhere, See the World Through Beer!
I'm a beer hunter, chasing those perfect pints across the USA, Canada, and Europe. I'm also a pub hunter, exploring those places where great beer is sold and poured. I love to engage in conversation with fellow craft beer lovers, locals, and brewers (The Irish pub word is Craic). This allows me to immerse myself in local culture and customs, and let's face it: the world could use a little more of that these days.
There has never been a better time to be a fan of craft beer, which is why there has never been a better time to See the World through Beer, with Craft Beer Journeys.

The Art of Animation was fantastic for the cost and overall experience on the grounds. His recommendations on the order of which park to go to was spot on for our age diverse family. Now only to figure out where we want him to book us next!
I was born to travel. Almost literally! According to my parents, the first two words I ever spoke were "bus" and "airplane." This was mostly due to the fact that our street was on a Cleveland Transit Bus Line, and was 3 miles east of the end of one of the runways at Cleveland Hopkins Airport. So I saw a lot of buses and airplanes as a toddler.
By the time I was 4 years old, I was enjoying the view from inside the airplane, looking at the houses, cars and buildings get smaller and smaller as my parents whisked my brother and I to England, the first of 6 trips made during my formative years, to visit my grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins from my Dad's side of the family. I loved everything about these trips, including the traveling...
