The Beer Chicks are renowned beer sommeliers Christina Perozzi and Hallie Beaune. They met while working together at the famed Father’s Office in Santa Monica, CA and became fast friends over the bond they shared with their one true love, craft beer. After a long night of bartending and answering the same questions over and over again, they decided (over beers, of course) to write a book, that explained beer in an accessible way, so that everyone could love craft beer as much as they do. Their book, The Naked Pint: An Unadulterated Guide to Craft Beer, was published in November of 2009 (The Penguin Group, New York, NY) to much acclaim and their new book, The Naked Brewer, Fearless Homebrewing, Tips, Tricks & Rule-breaking Recipes will be published in October of 2012.  They continue to spread the good word about the best beverage on earth and to raise beer to its rightful place!  So pull up your bar stool, pour a pint of your best craft beer, and begin to savor beer on another level at thebeerchicks.com. They live by the motto:  Beer is Good!
