As a freelance writer in Belgium, Lissa Maki got to write about beer and bike rides, and there was no going back to a “normal” job. She now lives in Duluth and loves to go on micro-adventures around Lake Superior, especially when they involve beer at Castle Danger Brewing in Two Harbors. Maki reports for Perfect Duluth Day and has contributed to The Growler, All About Beer, American Brewer, and more.
