My name is Joshua M. Bernstein, and I’m a Brooklyn-based beer, spirits, food and travel journalist, as well as an occasional tour guide, event producer and industry consultant.
Since 2000, I’ve written for scores of newspapers, magazines and websites, including Bon Appétit, Men’s Journal, New York, The New York Times, Saveur, Wine Enthusiast and Imbibe, where I’m a contributing editor in charge of beer coverage.
I’m the author of four books. In 2011, Sterling Epicure published Brewed Awakening, my deeply reported take on the global craft beer revolution. Sterling released my follow-up, The Complete Beer Course, in September 2013. It has sold more than 95,000 copies and been translated into several languages, including Chinese and South Korean. Sterling published Complete IPA, my chronicle of the worldwide spread of IPAs, in 2016. Sterling released my latest book, Homebrew World, in spring 2018.
Lastly, once upon a time I made zines and worked as an editor and a copy editor. My clients included ELLE, Rolling Stone, Us Weekly, SmartMoney and Blender. That means I like proper punctuation and can be counted on to deliver spic-and-span copy.
