Hallie Beaune grew up in Arizona where her first beer was from a can (and it wasn’t good). She earned a B.A. in Theatre at the University of Puget Sound and moved into the world of professional theatre. Hallie’s roles in the Tony Award-winning play Metamorphoses took her to the famed Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles.
Her Beer Journey brought her to the beloved beer bar Father’s Office in Santa Monica, CA where she met fellow Beer chick Christina Perozzi, and became a manager. At Father’s Office she taught the illustrious “F.O. Beer School” and was featured on the hit cable foodie show, “After Hours with Daniel Boulud” as F.O’s resident expert, and on KNBC Evening News and KTLA Morning News.
Hallie has written about beer in numerous blogs like therundown.com, spreading the good word of beer all over Los Angeles. She has been featured in magazines, newspapers and blogs such as Imbibe, Brand X, Grubstreet, The LA Times, CarolineonCrack, The Celebrator, and Beer West Magazine. She has worked with Christina on sold-out beer dinners at critically acclaimed L.A. restaurants like Rustic Canyon Winebar & Seasonal Kitchen, as well as Consulting on beer for restaurants like Public School 612. Hallie currently resides in L.A. as a beer consultant, actress, author, and beer lover.
Hallie’s favorite beer is an earthy and complex Orval.
