Anne Becerra is still shocked that she's been able to turn her love for craft beer into a career. She was the first female Certified Cicerone in NYC and has been at the helm of some of the best craft beer bars in Manhattan for the last seven years, most recently at The Blind Tiger and as Beer Director for Taproom 307. Anne is a beer writer for Serious Eats and Martha Stewart Living, and has been featured multiple times on NBC, Fox and Friends and CNN as well as contributed to TIME Magazine, Cosmopolitan, Wall Street Journal, Sirius XM, and more. She was the only speaker at both Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans and the Women’s Chef and Restaurateur Conference in NYC to represent the beer industry, and believes the best part about craft beer is sharing it. You can catch her teaching classes, hosting weekly tasting events, and curating beer pairings throughout the tri-state area. In addition to being on the New York tasting panel with Riedel and Spiegelau to help create the first ever IPA beer glass, she was named one of the "Heroes of the Craft Beer Movement" by Vanberg and DeWulf Imports, has helped organize major beer festivals and has been a beer judge several years in a row for multiple competitions. Known to many as "Anne Likes Beer," she has traveled around the world visiting countless breweries and continually uses her platforms to promote and support local businesses, healthy living, and sustainable practices.
