Greetings, my name is Jay R. Brooks. I'm a beer columnist, freelance writer, beer judge and journalist, living in Sonoma County in the San Francisco Bay Area of California. I write a syndicated newspaper column, "Brooks on Beer," that appears in numerous papers. I also have a freakish love of potato chips and frites that borders on obsession.
