Meet our newest beerlanthropist, Scott Douglas

Posted Nov 06, 2015 in Beer, Coolness, Goings on, In the news, People, The Beerlanthropy® Project

imageBorn in Asheville and raised in Waynesville, Scott Douglas discovered craft beer ten years ago while studying film at Columbia University in New York.  Scott is the fourth generation of the Douglas family to work in the alcohol industry, but the first to focus on craft beer. 

In addition to working with the Bruisin’ Ales team, Scott is also a professional film critic and craft beer journalist. 

Scott’s favorite beers are Imperial Stouts and Belgian Quads, and he recently visited all of the Trappist Breweries in Belgium, so if you’re looking for malt-forward, high-gravity beers he’s the man to ask. 

Come meet Scott and his German Shepherd/Siberian Husky mix, Ellie, here at Bruisin’ Ales.

(He also looks remarkably like Rasputin and his Halloween costume is just a wee bit famous. See photo!)
