by Lucy Burningham Author

Lucy Burningham made it her quest to write about craft beer--as many different kinds as she could! As a journalist spurred by curiosity and thirst, she chronicles her experience traveling to hop farms, attending rare beer tasting parties, and visiting as many taprooms, breweries, and festivals as possible. Through her travels, Lucy decided to take her relationship with beer to the next level: to become a certified beer expert. As Lucy studies and sips her way to becoming a Certified Cicerone, she meets an eclectic cast of characters, including brewers, hop farmers, beer sommeliers, pub owners, and fanatical beer drinkers. Her journey into the world of beer is by turns educational, social, and personal—just the way enjoying a good beer should be.
