Meet Your Master Cicerone:

Andrew Van Til

Andrew Van Til first fell in love with beer in college while studying in Europe. He went on to passionately pursue all things beer as a home brewer, brewmaster, brand manager, and beer educator.

In 2009, Andrew was the first person in the world certified as a Master Cicerone, the highest professional title in the craft industry. His encyclopedic knowledge of beer is matched only by the joy he gets from sharing it with others— preferably over a beer.

Andrew recently relocated to the Chicago area, where he hopes to share many a virtual beer until it’s safe enough to do so in person again.

Will Breman will perform a 30 minute virtual concert after the tasting.

For the last few years, Santa Barbara-based singer/songwriter Will Breman has made a name for himself as a prominent Central Coast music staple. 2019 started with his release of his debut Santa Barbara Soul Music EP, and culminated with his performing as a semifinalist on Season 17 of NBC's The Voice. 


Breman's style is as eclectic as his background. His musical upbringing began with voice lessons from his mother and teaching himself guitar. Since the, Will has tried everything from screaming in metal bands to serenading at coffee shops and touring across the nation. 


Will's live performance has evolved over the years, and he currently uses technique called "live looping" - a process where he records and plays back multiple instrument parts in real time, creating a "one man band" effect. As a songwriter, Will's goal has consistently been to channel deep emotions that cannot be expressed through any other medium. He has taught himself multiple instruments to achieve this, and aspires to create songs that bear his soul and tell engaging stories.
