My name is Joshua M. Bernstein, and I’m a Brooklyn-based beer, spirits, food, travel and bicycling (phew!) journalist, as well as an occasional tour guide. Over the last decade, I’ve written for dozens of newspapers, magazines and websites, including Details, Time Out New York, Saveur, New York, Imbibe, Bicycling, CHOW.com, Gourmet.com, Tasting Table, New York Post, Edible Manhattan, New York Daily News, Wired, ReadyMade, The New York Times, Metromix (where I wrote the “Dollar Grub” column), ForbesTraveler.com, TravelandLeisure.com and the New York Press, for whom I wrote a weekly food-and-drink column called “Gut Instinct.” My parents are very proud.
I’m also the author of Brewed Awakening, my deeply reported take on the global craft-beer revolution. I’m currently working on my follow-up, due out in fall 2013 from Sterling Epicure.
In addition, I work as an editor and a copy editor. My clients have included ELLE, Rolling Stone, Us Weekly, SmartMoney and Blender. I like proper punctuation.
