About Dikla Tuchman

Dikla started her beer-drinking career back in 2002 while studying in Brussels, Belgium. Seven years later, she decided to take her passion and hobby to the internet (like you do) and began writing diligently about the craft beer industry in the Greater Seattle area.

As a blogger for several local websites, and now published magazine writer (Beer West Magazine), her love for the brewery business in the Pacific Northwest has turned into a mission to educate through writing.
