Greg Engert is a leader of the craft beer experience in the DMV and in this episode, he visits with the Brew Daddies to talk about how he started and shaped some of the region’s top venues and events, including Churchkey, The Sovereign, Bluejacket, and Snallygaster.
Greg is a self-taught beer connoisseur and he discusses whether that is even a possibility for someone entering the craft beer industry today and how famed beer writer Michael Jackson influenced him at a young age.
As Neighborhood Restaurant Group’s (NRG) Beer Director, overseeing more than 20 locations across the DMV, Greg has strived to make it the norm to pair food with beer, not just wine. He encourages patrons to step out of their comfort zone and try beers that they may not otherwise notice but that pair well with their meal.
This is a great conversation and one of our favorite episodes of the Show to date!
