WhiskyFest San Francisco Speaker Megan Breier
West Coast Bourbon Ambassador
Born and bred in Kentucky, Megan has spent the last two years putting her Bluegrass state savvy to good use as the Bourbon Ambassador for Jim Beam in the home state. After training at the Jim Beam Distillery and working alongside Master Distiller Fred Noe, Megan is excited to share her Southern charm with the West Coast! Prior to her ambassadorship, Megan was immersed in the hospitality industry operating the award winning Garage Bar in Louisville, KY and coordinating major events for 21c Hotels.
Megan is known for creating unique and approachable events centering on bourbon education. Her thirst for knowledge and passion for bourbon is infectious, especially when she hams it up with you over an Oink and Barrel tasting (that’s Bourbon and Country Ham y’all).
As a transplant to the Bay Area, Megan is looking forward to running outside year round (no snow??!!), figuring out how public transportation works (who is this BART person people keep talking about?) and spending quality time with her nephew.
Megan most recently earned her Certified Spirits Specialist accreditation and is working towards becoming a Certified Spirits Educator with the Society of Wine Educators.
