Welcome! My name is Becki Kregoski and I’m a food fanatic and beer lover.
History of Brews – The first beer I ever tried was green – St. Patty’s Day up at UCSB. No wonder I didn’t like beer at first! However, my tastes were refined over the course of many years, traveling from Pacifico with lime to Fat Tire to Gulden Draak, Arrogant Bastard, Chimay, Dogfish Head and beyond.
On December 26, 2010 I took up homebrewing and brewed my first batch, “Dos Beckis”. It was love at first taste. I was a proud member of the Maltose Falcons homebrew club and brewed as often as my closet space allowed.
I worked as assistant brewer at Wolf Creek Brewery in Valencia for six months in 2012, and moved on to craft beer distribution on October 1st, 2012 where I’m at today.
I interned at Enegren Brewing Company in Moorpark, California for two years, helping with everything the owners let me get my hands on – brewing, working the tasting room, deliveries, tap cleaning, consumer education and beyond!
I began as a Certified Beer Server with the Cicerone program, and am more than proud to say that, two years after immersing myself in everything beer, I’m finally a Certified Cicerone® spreading the joys and wonders of craft beer as I imbibe upon it.
Up until mid-August of 2013, I worked as the Cicerone Certified® Craft Selection, Education and Pairing Specialist at Allied Distribution in Southern California where my duties were to design pairings for and host tons of drool-worthy dinners, and educate people about craft beer in general.
On August 23, 2013, I packed up my life into my little car and drove from California back to Colorado where I currently reside, hosting beer pairing dinners, visiting breweries, creating recipes, enjoying family and living life to the fullest.
History of Bites – I love food. Completely adore it. Couldn’t live without it (har har).
Food and I haven’t always had such an accepting relationship. During my youth, I shunned anything that wasn’t macaroni and cheese or mashed potatoes with peas. As I matured, I began incorporating more and more different foods into my repertoire, and have officially become a “foodie”. I will try any food once and welcome challenges to my tastebuds.
