“I enjoy working with all aspects of the Beer, Wine and Liquor Industry. Providing items to people who enjoy beverages for all occasions. I love the customer’s stories of travel, experiences, and cooking adventures as we find the perfect beverage to match the meal, or set the mood, or sharing what we currently find intriguing.  No matter where we have traveled, or what adventure we have had, be it a bottle of wine or a bottle of beer, there is a story or reflection to savor.”
