My name is Thomas Vincent and I am the Chief Navigator and Brewer for Compass Rose Brewery in Raleigh, North Carolina. I like to write when I have time and inspiration, mostly about the brewing industry but whatever topic may strike my fancy.
I became interested in beer 20 years ago as a student in Germany. I returned to the States and couldn’t find the beers I loved as easily, so I started to brew. First I brewed at home, later teaching others to homebrew, ultimately I became a professional brewer.
When not brewing I spend most of my time reading, all too often about beer, pestering my wife, working on my home, or playing with the trusty dog.
