Long ago, Chris founded one of North Carolina’s first and leading breweries in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Then he advised another successfully in Raleigh. Somewhere in there he picked up an MBA from the University of North Carolina, which really only gave him more standing to say, “Go Tar Heels!” Chris enjoys seeing people experience beer—it’s not hard to enjoy, and once it happens, well, that’s a happy place. As President, he works on creating and improving all the ways that All About Beer Magazine can help beer lovers experience craft beer.

A native son of North Carolina, Daniel once had the fortunate assignment of writing about Asheville’s breweries for his university paper. The article (and a requisite taste of Highland Brewing’s Oatmeal Porter) inspired him to continue writing about beer, which he has done for a variety of publications. He is also the author of Charlotte Beer: A History of Brewing in the Queen City and Beer Lover’s the Carolinas.
