The Business of Beer with Chris McClellan

  • Jimmy's 43

We love to talk about beer, we certainly love to brew beer, and we love to drink it even more. But have you ever considered a career in the industry? Working in the beer business can be as rewarding as it gets, and suffice it to say, you can come out of it with a more than your fair share of great stories. Join Chris McClellan, a beer industry vet and Certified Cicerone, in this intimate chat about his experience working and living great beer. He’ll share some stories, talk about the real world application of the Cicerone Program, and answer any questions you might have for someone out in the trenches. 

About Chris:

Chris McClellan was born in Burlington, Vermont and will readily admit that an ideal day would involve a sunny porch, a cold pint, a few good friends, and not much else. Suffice it to say that he isn't shy when it comes to talking shop about great beer. Chris works as a Guinness Brewery Ambassador, educator, and consultant to the beer industry. In his former life, Chris worked at Magic Hat Brewing Company, and more recently as an independent brand consultant for the beer industry. Chris also founded and runs The Brew Enthusiast, a website dedicated to industry storytelling and the human experience behind your favorite breweries.
