Kirk Richardson is a food writer based in Corvallis, Oregon, where craft breweries abound. He has written hundreds of magazine articles, but none he enjoys more than those focused on craft beer. Over the past 10 years, Kirk has had the opportunity to meet, interview and write about some of the best brewers in the world. Now he is taking the process a step further, searching far and wide for the best craft beers in North America, starting out west. Kirk enjoys sharing his (and others’) observations and stories with the world, and he invites his blog followers to participate in the journey. Join him in Craft Beer Country: In Search of The Best in The West! And be sure to stay tuned as he explores other North American bastions of beer, from the Rocky Mountains to the finest brewers in the East.
