Testimonials

David Nilsen is an engaging teacher whose classes are informative and fun. His knowledge is deep and his ability to translate it with ease and grace means I leave every session with a more precise beer vocabulary. All of this without feeling like I’ve just been bludgeoned with a beer encyclopedia. Highly recommended!
