_K4A0102My name is Joshua M. Bernstein, and I’m a Brooklyn-based beer, spirits, food and travel journalist, as well as an occasional tour guide. Since 2000, I’ve written for scores of newspapers, magazines and websites, including Bon Appétit, Men’s JournalDetails, New York, The New York TimesTime Out New York, SaveurDraft, Epicurious.com, Wine EnthusiastBicycling, Gourmet.com, Tasting Table, New York Post, Edible Manhattan, New York Daily News, Wired, ReadyMade and the New York Press, for whom I wrote a weekly food-and-drink column called “Gut Instinct.” Additionally, I’m a contributing editor to Imbibe, where I oversee beer coverage. My parents are very proud.

I’m also the author of Brewed Awakening, my deeply reported take on the global craft-beer revolution. My latest book, The Complete Beer Course, was released in September 2013 by Sterling Epicure. I’m currently working on Complete IPA, a chronicle of the worldwide spread of IPAs, set to be published September 2016 by Sterling Epicure.

Lastly, once upon a time I made zines and worked as an editor and a copy editor. My clients have included ELLE, Rolling Stone, Us Weekly, SmartMoney and Blender. I like proper punctuation.

  1. Hi, Joshua. At nearly 70, I have discovered the joys of craft brews. Relying on the elderly taste buds I love bocks, imperial stouts, double IPA’s and the adventure continues. The best beer I’ve ever quaffed is the one I just finished, until the next one! Just started the Complete Beer Course. I think I wrote the intro. Best Wishers, Pete Nagle
