Carlos is Scout’s beer writer. He’s a beer industry lawyer and a beer blogger with a particular interest in the intersection of craft beer, community and place. Since discovering the wider world of beer, Carlos has spent much of his free time visiting breweries across North America and beyond to enjoy the numerous stylistic variations and sheer deliciousness of his favourite beverage. In the intervening years between trying his first industrial lagers and spending his evenings sipping spontaneously fermented ales, Carlos played in a few bands, received a Master’s degree in European Cultural History, and generally tried to live out of his rucksack whenever he could. These days, when he’s not busy advising clients in BC’s craft beer industry or writing about beer for Scout, Carlos can often be found at one of his local ‘yeast van’ breweries, sharing a flight or two with friends, or some pretzels and pepperoni sticks with his two young kids.
