Amanda Dickinson is a North Carolina native, obsessed with beer culture. She is a Certified Beer Server, currently studying towards the Cicerone ™ exam. Amanda wants to eliminate the “beer snob” mystique in order to educate everyone about great craft beers. She believes, with Charlotte being home to some of the best breweries in the nation, that brewing culture has become part of the fabric of our great city. Partial to Russian Imperial Stouts, she is not above a Budweiser and a shot of tequila at the local honky tonk. Grab a beer with her at Lupie’s Café (Huntersville) or see more of her work at www.aBabeInBeerLand.com.
