Jonathan Ingram's picture

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. Once upon a time, Jonathan worked for the Scofflaw Brewing Company as the company's original Media Relations Guy. A former editor of The Beer Connoisseur, he continues to occasionally contribute stories on beer to various websites and magazines. A beer book is next!
