Madison Smith of "WinoBeeroFoodo" | Interview With A Craft Beer Enthusiast 2012 (part 1 of 2)


Madison Smith is known by the moniker "WinoBeeroFoodo" on the interwebs. I interviewed her about a year and a half ago when she was working for a winery in California, but since then she's moved back east to be the social media strategist for Natty Greene's Brewing Company. She's posted sporadically to YouTube over the last year, but has been starting to post videos on a more regular basis lately. I was able to shoot a beer review with her recently (which you can see here: http://youtu.be/yee_lVXW85Y ) and afterwards we decided to shoot another interview.
