BeerInfo's Portland Craft Beer Writer – Austin Foster
A few words that describe Austin: adventurer, communicator, enthusiastic,
laughter, organization fanatic, beer lover and passionate writer.
As a Portland native Austin grew up in a culture submersed in beer. Breweries
were and are sprouting up on every corner. She has vivid memories of her Dad
letting her try sips of his favorite beer, Full Sail Amber, at the dinner table
when she was younger.
Going to college at the University of Oregon in Eugene, Austin along with her
friends found themselves frequently at Ninkasi Brewing Company. Total Domination
IPA quickly became her favorite beer her entire senior year. This is the year
her passion for beer and the brewing process started fermenting.
Austin is fascinated with the ever-evolving world of marketing in the brewing
industry. She’s worked in one of the largest craft brewing companies in the
nation, Craft Brew Alliance, as well as smaller craft breweries like Laurelwood
Brewing Company and McMenamins Brewery. Through it all she’s learned one thing -
in this industry you have to use your past experience to think on your feet and
match the constant evolution of the brewing industry.
