Liz Baessler

Liz is a writer and an avid tryer of things. She is a champion of fermentation.


Liz became gripped by brewing mania in 2013, when she and her roommate finally broke open an old and forgotten homebrew kit. She hasn't looked back since. 

Liz also writes about gardening at Gardening Know How and beekeeping at Perfect Bee. Her website chronicles her own adventures in beekeeping, gardening, fermentation, and whatever else comes her way. 


Liz holds a BA in English from Brandeis University and an MA in English from the University of Geneva in Switzerland.
