Hello, welcome to my site that’s all about beer!
My name is Amy Beers. All my life people have jokingly teased me by asking, "Do you like beer!?”
Yes, I do like beer. Ironically, I’ve built a career from my last name. So jokes on them!
I graduated from IU with a B.A. in Mass Communication. While I was still in school, I co-developed and co-produced a local TV show which I also hosted! It featured the local bars, restaurants and nightlife happenings in the greater Michiana area. “Nightlights” aired every Saturday evening for about three years. It was a ton of fun and people would often ask, “is Beers really your last name!?”
We later expanded the show to the Indianapolis market and I took a second job as the host of the Indy Visitors Channel, acting as a city guide for hotel guests. I really got to know the city well and soon fell in love. I’ve lived in Indy now for almost 10 years.
I enjoy entertaining people, connecting them to fun and enriching opportunities, and sharing my knowledge of beer. I worked at a brewery for a time while I started my own tour company called “Drinking with Beers”. Now I give city tours with a focus on beer, history, and culture. I’m a member of Pink Boots Society (a non-profit supporting women beer industry professionals). I’m also writing a book about the history of Indianapolis brewing and studying to become a Cicerone (certified beer expert).
Aside from beer, my other passion is travel. I’ve been to Prague (where the beer is cheaper than water), Thailand, Spain, Ireland, Japan, Vietnam, Mexico, Cuba, and all over the Caribbean where I worked briefly on a cruise ship as a shopping guide. I’m always planning my next adventure. I sense Germany and Belgium next on the list!
That’s all for me. I would love to learn more about you! Feel free to drop me a line!
My Favs & Inspiration
BEER: My go-to is Belgian Witbier. In the colder months I enjoy porters and stouts. But really, I like everything! It depends on my mood or if I’m pairing it with food.
TRAVEL: Prague and Thailand. I can’t decide! I love them both for different reasons.
INSPIRATION: Women who go against the grain, challenge the status quo, and live their truth even in the face of adversity.
