Matt Kump is a beer traveller, trader, and festival organizer in South Vancouver. He has certifications in Serious Beer, Serious Beer 2, and Prud’homme 1 training, and has just been too lazy to pursue Cicerone and BJCP certifications so far. Matt helps organize Farmhouse Fest, a celebration of Saisons and Wild Ales that takes place at UBC Farm every summer. When not designing software, he is usually travelling to beer festivals around the world, or just exploring cities with great beer.
Favourite beer styles: funky old lambic.
Between studying History at UBC, masquerading as a poet, and providing the good people of Mount Pleasant and Burnaby with adult beverages, DF Parizeau is a Prairie-boy trying his best to adjust to West Coast life. An avid beer drinker, he would feel completely lost in a world without Belgium’s vast range of contributions to the beer world, or a good robust porter. In addition to adding the finishing touches to his undergrad degree, DF is more than happy to talk shop about beer at one of his places of employment: Main Steet’s Brewery Creek liquor store, or the tasting room of Dageraad Brewing.
