Beer, Cider Judge
Nick grew up working on the prairie, then in a green house, always relying on his senses in the field and never afraid to use taste and smell when helping to identify plants. Drawing on his extensive background in the natural sciences, he enjoys making connections between the natural world around us and anything fermented.
He previously worked at West Lakeview Liquors, is currently working towards a Cicerone certification, and is most fond of classically-styled beers, wines, ciders, and spirits. When not talking to his customers about beer or whiskey, he can be found on his bike, building PC's, fishing, or exploring nature.
