The Thirsty German

Beer Reviews | Craft Beer Events | Industry News







– Hi – I’m Nicol Winkler and I love beer. I’m originally from the beautiful Black Forest in southern Germany. Since 2005 I’ve been going back and forth between Europe and the states and trying different beer in between!  I like documenting my beer experiences and sharing my adventures whenever I can! I am proud to be the International & National Chapter Liaison for Pink Boots Society, and I also am on the Advisory Board of Green Jane, and am helping expand the craft beer division for one of their companies; Green CO2 Systems.  I am proud the co-founder of the annual Oktoberfest Tampa.  I currently reside between Tampa, FL and Denver, CO where I have gotten to chance to meet many great brewers, and even brew with them myself. I also write for a new craft beer community, United by Hops, so if you want to stay up to date on American craft beer all around the world, be sure to check out the site and join in the conversation.

I’m always looking to expand my knowledge about cultures and how people communicate around the world, and I find that beer brings a lot of people together! I will post more elaborate beer reviews and cultural stories here on the site, but you can stay up to date on my daily updates on my social profiles for up to the minute beer adventure stories!


Til next time….CHEERS, PROST, SALUD & Živjeli!!!
