about Tigg

I love beer.

Being from the Northeast, my Craft Beer teeth were cut on many fine breweries.The likes of Long Trail, Magic Hat, Catamount (RIP), Otter Creek, Boston Beer Co., Harpoon Brewing, Boston Beer Works, Sea Dog Brewing, Allagash Brewing, Gritty McDuff's, Brewery Ommegang, Southern Tier Brewing and C.H. Evan's Brewing Co. were all consumed in liberal amounts.

In 2008, I moved to Portland, OR. It's here, that I've found what it truly means to be a beer enthusiast. There is no doubt that we live up to the name "Beervana." Not only do we have amazing Oregon breweries like Deschutes, Rogue, Wider Brothers, Pyramid and McMenamins, local Portland breweries like Lompoc Brewing, Breakside Brewery, Burnside Brewing Co., Hopworks Urban Brewery, and Upright Brewing are pushing the envelope of Craft Brewing and producing some of the best beers I've ever tasted.

Recently, in a very natural progression of beer fanaticism, I've begun brewing my own beer. Averaging one batch every other week, my home brews vary in style from Pales to IPA's, from Porters to Stouts...  light refreshing Hefes in the summer to heartier Bochs in the spring.

I know beer.

I invite you to pick my brain and find the perfect pairing to go with YOUR happy hour food selections. I can recommend something fresh and local to compliment the moment, or, if we plan far enough in advance, I can brew up a special batch just for your occasion.

Beer is my passion and I look forward to sharing it with you.
