Beer

Anne Becerra

Anne Becerra has a very strong passion for craft beer and the community that surrounds it. She was the first woman in New York City to become a Certified Cicerone -- or beer sommelier -- and has worked at the helm of the biggest beer bars in Manhattan for the last six years, including Blind Tiger, The Ginger Man, and The Pony Bar.  She was named one of the "Heroes of the Craft Beer Movement" by Vanberg and DeWulf imports, has helped organize major beer festivals, and was asked to be part of the New York tasting panel with Riedel and Spiegelau that helped create the first ever IPA beer glass. Anne has been a beer judge several years in a row for multiple competitions and was one of the few people to represent the beer industry at the 2014 Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans.   Anne loves spreading the word about great craft beer almost as much as drinking it. She has been featured in multiple media spots including recurring appearances on NBC, Fox and Friends, TIME magazine, Heritage Network's Beer Sessions Radio, New York Daily News, El Diario, Metro NY, AM New York, and Ale Street News.  She's also a regular contributor to Serious Eats and Thrillist.
