The audience has followed him since his days as a wide-eyed novice, through the years, working beer bars, brewery tours, and even helping a start-up brewery as a handy-man, cellarman, and a few other postions. His every-man attitude and love of community are shown in each episode, and he's always ready for a good story over a beer, or two, or three.
