TAP TAKEOVER: Dr. Bill with Stone Brewing Co.

Now’s your chance to meet the legendary Dr. Bill Sysak, Craft Beer Ambassador for Stone Brewing Co. “Dr.” Bill is a Certified Cicerone® and has proven expertise in selecting, acquiring and serving craft beers.

He received his nickname through his work as a medic in the military Army National Guard, and the moniker has stuck with him throughout his career in the craft beer industry. At Stone, he’s responsible for setting the beverage standard and ensuring the beverage philosophy is followed at all Stone Brewing Co. venues. “Dr.” Bill suggests the beer, wine and food pairings for the menus at the restaurant, and also coordinates and hosts many Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens events including: Beer & Cigar Dinners, Master Pairing events, Sour Fest, Oakquinox, Stone Pour it Black, and Rare Beer Breakfast. Sysak has been featured in such publications as New York Times, Draft magazine, Imbibe, Los Angeles Times, and Food & Wine. He can also be found on the popular Internet podcasts, “New Brew Thursday” where he does a “Master Pairings” segment each week and “Expert Drinking,” where he educates his fans on the best of craft beers, fine wines, and spirits.

Dr. Bill should be bringing nothing but the best that Stone Brewing Co. has to offer this time of year, so don’t miss out on quality brew by what BeerAdvocate magazine has called the “All-time Top Brewery on Planet Earth,” twice.
