Megan Breier

West Coast American Whiskey Ambassador

Born and bred in Kentucky, Megan spent two years putting her Bluegrass state savvy to good use as the Bourbon Ambassador for Jim Beam in the home state. After training at the Jim Beam Distillery and working alongside Master Distiller Fred Noe, Megan decided it was time to share her Southern charm with the West Coast!  Prior to her ambassadorship, Megan was immersed in the hospitality industry operating the award winning Garage Bar in Louisville, KY and coordinating major events for 21c Hotels.   

Megan is known for creating unique and approachable events centering on bourbon education.  Her thirst for knowledge and passion for bourbon is infectious, especially when she hams it up with you over an Oink and Barrel tasting (that’s Bourbon and Country Ham y’all). 

Megan most recently earned her Certified Spirits Specialist accreditation and is working towards becoming a Certified Spirits Educator with the Society of Wine Educators.
