Michelle Sistek

Craft Beer & Spirits Writer

Michelle is a freelance writer with diverse interests who is always on the lookout for a great new beer. She doesn't call herself a beer snob, but her family might disagree. Her favorite local beer is Maritime Pacific's Jolly Roger.

Born in Arizona, she moved to Seattle for the weather as well as to attend grad school at the University of Washington (go Dawgs!). She has previously worked as both a Christmas Tree and the Easter Bunny. These days, she is a technical writer-editor and mom to two adorable and spirited little girls.

Besides beer, she is passionate about baseball (go Dodgers, Mariners, and Mets), Disney, Pearl Jam, and the ABC TV series "Once Upon a Time". Follow her on Twitter at @msdodgrblu.
