Hi! I’m Brittany Angus and I am a fourth-year journalism major at West Virginia University in Morgantown, West Virginia. When I’m not working at a local pizza joint, I can be found cheering on the Mountaineer football team on game days, playing with my two beloved dogs, or completely engrossed in a book.
I have worked in a craft beer and specialty pizza restaurant for over two years. Over the years, I have been exposed to many craft breweries with different styles of beers and diverse approaches to selling their products. Throughout my training I have taken numerous beer classes and have become a Cicerone Certified Server. My love for craft breweries, especially craft hard ciders, has only grown stronger and has become more objective and informative as I continuously learn about the history of brewing. Local wine has also become a passion of mine because I believe supporting local businesses is integral to a thriving community.
