Job Title: Beer Sommelier/Cicerone
Company Details: Two Penny Beer | Scarborough Renaissance Festival
Biography: Bob's interest in beer turned serious right after his oldest child was born and he started homebrewing, a hobby he could do at home. From there it was a small jump to sharing his beer which turned into helping friends get started brewing their own after trying his. Then came organized tasting with those friends.
In 2015, he was approached to host the beer tasting at the local renaissance festival where he had been cast years before and Seamus' Beer Tasting was born. With the launch of this endeavor came a need for knowledge and desire for accreditation, and so the journey to Certified Cicerone began.
While he still works full time in the IT industry, Bob now hosts private beer tasting events all year round in addition to his work every spring at Scarborough Renaissance festival.
