Greg Engert

James Beard Award nominee
Title: Beer Director
Location: Washington, DC
Establishment: Neighborhood Restaurant Group (including Bluejacket and Birch & Barley)

Why he's a big deal: Scours the globe to find the best beers available for his loyal customers, specializing in domestic microbrews as well as international craft rarities that are not readily available in the United States. Food & Wine named him one of its “Sommeliers of the Year,” the first time the publication has ever selected a beer professional for the prize.
