Drinking Made Easy

BJ Gamboa »

B.J. began his drinking career in earnest in the Blue Mountains of Virginia where he studied extensively under the Reverend Jack Daniels and Professor Jim Beam. After college, he moved to Beantown where he developed a taste for beer. However, B.J.’s interest in craft didn’t start until he moved back to his native Lawn Guyland where he began to dabble in home brewing. Currently, he is more interested in consumption rather than production but hopes to one day have is own über-nano-brewery, stop working for Da Man and to while away his time reading, writing, brewing, drinking and cage fighting. He lives with his lovely (and tolerant) wife and their 17-year old dachshund, Zoo.
