Interview Series: Meet the Geeks: Joe Drury

Name: Joe Drury

Hometown: Pittsfield, MA

Favorite Beer: The Bourbonic Plague/Pliny the Elder - Can’t choose just one!

Favorite Beer Haunt: Cascade Barrel House. But the Horse Brass and Beer Mongers are a close second.

What was the first craft brew you ever tried? What did you think? Magic Hat #9. I thought it was awesome.

Do you homebrew? If yes, favorite homebrew to date: I do. Extract, of course. Recently did an oak aged English style IPA that I am quite fond of.

How’d you hear about the pdxbeergeeks? Twitter?

What does being a beer geek mean to you? Passion!

If you could change one thing about beer culture in the US, what would it be? It would be great if more places had a beer culture like Portland.  I wouldn’t change a thing about this place (Portland) in that respect.

What do you love about Portland’s Craft Beer scene? The passion, knowledge and creativity. Where else can you go to a beer fest nearly every week for most of the year?

Where can we find you on the web? On my blog, Pliny the Drury
