What is Prohibitchin’?

Prohibitchin’ seeks to amplify the voices of people working in and around craft beer, spirits, wine, cider, and other beverage alcohol segments who may not get the recognition they deserve. By highlighting a diverse array of voices with a range of experiences and occupying varying roles within their industries, Prohibitchin’ hopes to expand the preconceived notion of who works in, enjoys, and moves hospitality forward.

Who is Beth?

I’m a San Diego-based freelance writer and podcaster who specializes in covering the craft beer and cider industries. I’m also a founding member of the San Diego Brewers Guild Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Committee to (hopefully) make my local craft beer scene a little less sexist, racist, homophobic, and otherwise toxic. Other organizations I am a part of include the North American Guild of Beer Writers (NAGBW), a Certified judge through the Beer Judge Certification Program (BJCP), the San Diego Society of Professional Journalists, and a Certified Cider Professional through the American Cider Association. My first book, The Beer Lover’s Guide to Cider, comes out September 2023.

What else should I read?

You can find all of my work here, including bylines in the Washington Post, Saveur Magazine, Playboy, Civil Eats, VICE, Good Beer Hunting, PUNCH, VinePair, Edible San Diego, San Diego Magazine, EatingWell Magazine, Thrillist, and so on.
