What is the one thing you'd like to tell visitors to the Guild's website?

I am an avid beer enthusiast and professional. I push the boundaries of emerging beer culture in my country through writing, translation (“Tasting beer” by Randy Mosher, The Comic Book Story of Beer by Aaron McConnell, Jonathan Hennessey, and Mike Smith), talks and educational sessions. Another activity I engage in is creating more space in the industry for female beer lovers and professionals.

Certified Cicerone, BJCP Judge, Apprentice Beercierge. Member of Pink Boots Society. Beer runner.

Can be found at Varvar Brew in Kyiv, Ukraine, from where I hail, in Zurich, Switzerland, and all over Europe at festivals and breweries I frequently visits.
