About Brew Scout

Hi! I’m the co-founder of RunTOBeer, one of the world’s most popular beer running series. I’m also a Prud’homme Certified Beer Sommelier and published writer.

The former Beer Writer for The Toronto Standard and Bamboo Magazine, my more recent work has appeared in Get Out There, Canadian Running, Scandinavian Brewers’ Review, iRunTAPS MagazineNOW Magazine and The Opinion.

I provided the feature Article for NOW Magazine’s 2014 Beer Issue

My past work as a fashion writer appeared in Corduroy Magazine, Highrise Magazine, Models.com, and Vervegirl Magazine.

For years I was acknowledged as the authority on the Canadian modelling industry, travelling the country in search of new faces and publishing http://www.modelresource.ca (since disconnected). That career afforded me the opportunity to sit at brew pubs and fine beer establishments across the county, getting to better know what makes Canada so special. Beer, like conversation — and indeed, like Canada itself — is at its best when it’s about about innovation, respect, community and an appreciation of differences.

I truly do love the conversation, so naturally, your comments are welcome.

  2. Hi Dan – just wanted to thank you for modelresource.ca. I’m the father of two girls, the oldest being freshly 13 and an aspiring model. Your site is everything I could have wanted to ensure we step down this path with eyes open, armed with great info, and ready to support her come what may. We’re also a beer and bike-friendly family…somehow it all mixes together quite well. Best of luck with all your (ad)ventures.

  3. Hi Dan,

    We’re looking to send you a package of libations and would love to know the best shipping address to send it to. If you could email me back at your earliest convenience that would be fantastic.

    Thanks in advance,
