About Emily Hengstebeck

Emily hails from southeast Michigan, but followed her passion for craft beer up north to join the team at Beards Brewery in Petoskey. Operating as the Director of Sales & Events and general harbinger of beer, she gladly gives back her time and enthusiasm to an industry that she loves. This combined with her work done with MittenBrew and Fermenta keeps her extremely happy and extremely busy, and reminds her that beer dreams do come true.
