Kevin Risner

Kevin Risner is a product of Ohio. He has lived there for most of his life except for brief stints in England and Turkey. At the present, he resides in the Cleveland area. Kevin's beer history stretches back to when he began indulging bitters, stouts and cask ales at hole-in-the-wall pubs in England. Not long after, for two sad years, he was deprived of delicious brews when living in Istanbul. Thankfully, at the present, he is not lacking in his choice of craft beers.
