Hero Profile » About Paul Schiavone
Paul Schiavone runs BostonChefs.com by day, and moonlights as a home beer brewer at night. His initial interest in beer sparked when his father returned from San Francisco with a bottle of Anchor Brewing Christmas Ale. It was like no beer he had ever tried. This was before a broad selection of microbrews from different regions were available to purchase, and Paul decided that if he wanted to drink a beer with that much character, he'd have to learn how to make it himself. His first batch wasn't drinkable (and was used as a punishment beer amongst his brothers during drinking games), but with time, his brewed batches improved. Today, he is experimenting with growing hops in his backyard, has mastered a variety of different beer styles, and even tried his hand at making mead.
