About the Author

Paul-TeckerMy name is Paul Tecker and I am a long time home brewer, craft beer enthusiast and self-proclaimed hop aficionado. For nearly 15 years, I have been involved with the thriving natural and organic beverage industry and continue to be convinced that the future is bright for healthier food and beverages. My hobbies include growing hops in my back yard and home brewing.  Although I was born in the Pacific Northwest (where hops traditionally flourish) I now make my home in Southern California with my wife and two growing boys.
