The Brewing Team
Hi, my name is Mark Nielsen, the creator, and author of 52 Brews; a blog about the homebrewing process, techniques, beer updates, equipment reviews, beer of the month clubs, and many more.
Before I become a homebrewer myself, I enjoyed drinking different types of beer with my buddies, visiting local breweries and the out-of-state ones. We always get to learn something new in every brewery we discover, and with these learnings, I was inspired to brew my own beer.
Graduating from the San Diego Culinary Institute with a Diploma in Cuisine, I love incorporating beer with the food I make. The science behind beer and food are fascinating, and I always make sure to experiment with different beer styles and ingredients, creating food that is perfect for my family and drinking buddies, of course.
After 10 years of homebrewing, I know it is time to share what I know about the craft. This blog has helped me document my journey in homebrewing and now, I am going to share it with you. Join me as I gather more techniques on how to brew, create more product reviews, and discover more beer of the month clubs we can subscribe to; all for the love of beer.
