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.
