According to the Washington Post, the number of breweries in the United States has increased twofold in just four years. As of December 2015, there are 4,144 breweries in the country. Lucy Burningham, beer aficionada and author of the recently released My Beer Year
, has been rejoicing in this beer renaissance. Burningham decided to take passion for beer to the next level by becoming a certified beer expert, studying independently and traveling throughout the United States and abroad to Europe in her efforts to master the craft.
