Information about Speakers:

Nancy Hoalst-Pullen
Speaker

A world traveler, professor, and beer writer, Nancy Hoalst-Pullen, Ph.D., has interviewed hundreds of people and imbibed thousands of beers to (re)discover the stories surrounding the geographies of beer. As a National Geographic Explorer, she has visited hundreds of locales across six continents—from historic breweries of Belgium to backyard home-brews in South Africa—to understand how beer and brewing have evolved over time and place. Nancy has published various articles on beer, with particular emphasis on the role of sustainability in the beer industry, and co-edited the book The Geography of Beer: Regions, Environment, and Societies with Mark Patterson. Mark Patterson and Nancy’s new book, Atlas of Beer: A Globe-Trotting Journey Through the World of Beer, is hitting shelves in September.

Mark W. Patterson
Speaker

By day, Mark W. Patterson, Ph.D., is a geography professor whose research with Nancy Hoalst-Pullen examines sustainability trends in the beer industry. By night, Mark is an avid home-brewer, strategically planning his next research trip to breweries around the world. As a National Geographic Explorer, he has traveled nearly 200,000 miles (and counting) on his quest to identify the nuances of the beer industry and, of course, to sample the flavors of this time-honored craft. When he is not traveling the globe, Mark can be found playing ice hockey or working on a script for a pilot series on the US craft beer industry. Mark Patterson and Nancy-Hoalst Pullen’s new book, Atlas of Beer: A Globe-Trotting Journey Through the World of Beer is hitting shelves in September.
