Hey! I'm an entrepreneur, writer, Certified Cicerone®, consultant, and beer educator based in New York City. 

I'm the owner of Alphabet City Beer Co. on Avenue C and Governors Island Beer Co. in New York City.

I'm a writer. I've covered everything from pop culture to tech to travel. I am currently a beer contributor at Thrillist.

I've appeared on the nationally syndicated Dr. Oz Show as a beer expert. I’ve also done tons of podcasts and radio shows, including Beer Sessions Radio with Jimmy Carbone and Heritage Radio Networks roundtable discussions.

I am hopelessly addicted to ramen, have been known to book a flight just because it's on sale, and avoid writing in the third person at all cost.

You can find me on Facebook, TwitterInstagram, and Snapchat (zmack85).
