Sherry Dryja

Sherry is a travel writer, lifelong traveler and taster of life. A reformed cookie scorcher, she now shows others how to avoid kitchen failures, occasionally teaching baking classes and catering small events. To know her is to be recruited as a taste tester for the recipes she develops for The Beer Connoisseur® and her blog, Kitchen Dilettante. She and her husband split their time between Seattle and Phoenix with their miniature schnauzer, Lukas.

Jonathan Ingram

A freelance writer for 32 years before crossing over to the dark side of editing, Jonathan’s original “I Write for Beer” T-shirt was a tie-dyed model. He also enjoys running – yep – for beer. He’s written six books on motor racing, a sport pursued to the ends of the earth because he enjoyed being paid to travel and write stories daily about danger and passionate individualism. A perfect day ended at the nearest emporium holding good food, beer and conversation.
