Mia Pedersen is relatively new to the craft beer world (she’s only been legally able to partake since 2012!), but she has been fully immersed ever since. She grew up in Delaware, just 15 minutes from the Dogfish Head Brewery, and knew early on what good beer was. When she turned 18 she moved to Florida to attend the University of Miami and graduated in three years with a Bachelors in Media Management and Philosophy.
She ended up in Beer City in January 2014 and founded the Asheville chapter of Girls Pint Out (an organization for women who love craft beer) one year later. Her favorite beer styles are sours, coffee stouts, and double IPAs. Her other hobbies include thrift shopping and baking with beer.
