Beer Director, The Publican
The beer nerd’s beer nerd
A legend in Chicago, Vavrick turned his local Binny’s retail store into a Midwest craft beer mecca. Vavrick then worked for Octopi Brewing before he joined lauded restaurant The Publican. He believes that beer should be about community, evidenced by a rare-bottles-for-donations initiative he did via Facebook to benefit Hope For The Day, a suicide-prevention nonprofit.
