Interview With A Craft Beer Enthusiast: Marcus Guiliano of Aroma Thyme Bistro (part 2 of 2)

Marcus Guiliano is the owner of Aroma Thyme Bistro, a gourmet restaurant in Ellenville New York whose beer list is about 8 pages long! Marcus is a chef with a degree in Culinary Arts and is very passionate and knowledgeable about beer, wine and spirits. He helped start with Kevin Burns (a frequent guest reviewer of mine) to get accurate information about craft beer and New York-based beer out to the public.

In part 2 of this interview, Marcus talks about: his opinion on the so-called hierarchy of quality of beer; his opinion of the three-tier distribution system and how he works with it as a individual restaurateur; and what the future holds for the craft beer industry.

Be sure to check out Part 1, wherein Marcus talks about: why he only carries craft beer in his restaurant and the beer dinners they hold; his personal history with craft beer; how beer is taught in the culinary arts field; beer versus wine; why he doesn't homebrew; his favorite styles and breweries; and how he gets BMC drinkers into craft beer.
