The man you know as aka wine geek has finally, officially, become the maguey geek. Effective immediately, Steven Olson, formerly known as wine geek, will be the Global Mezcal Advocate, aka maguey geek, for Del Maguey Single Village Mezcal, devoting himself full-time to spreading the gospel of Mezcal and helping to preserve the culture of the indigenous artisan palenqueros of Mexico, guiding [and living and breathing] the mission of all of us at Del Maguey Single Village Mezcal.

Rest assured, Olson will always remain co-founder and co-managing partner of Beverage Alcohol Resource (BAR), with his partners, Paul Pacult, Doug Frost, MS, MW, Dale DeGroff, David Wondrich, and Andy Seymour, and as such will also continue as an active educator for BarSmarts.

Steve will also continue to serve in a consulting role as a minority partner at J. Rieger & Co.
