Beer Advocate Magazine hired me to photograph Birds Fly South Ale Project in Greenville, SC for their annual round up of the best new breweries across the nation. I spent a day of brewing, drinking, and shooting with (husband and wife / co-owners) Shawn & Lindsay at their brewery. 

Unfortunatly it was a rainy day when i arrived which made shooting outside out of the question and it seriously limited the natural light available inside. A little bit of rain couldn't stop us from having fun and the shoot turned out to be a blast! 

The magazine loved the images so much that to my surprise they made my favorite moment when Shawn and Lindsay climbed on top of the aging casks and started being super silly and cute the cover of the issue. I have to say... it's super exciting to see my image on the cover. 

If you in the Greenville, SC area I highly recommend checking out Birds Fly South Ale Project. Their Ruhbarb Gose is now by far my favorite beer of all time.
