He hasn't ever brewed any beer or ever worked for a brewery??? Sounds like this over-zealous "self promoter" lacks credibility in what he is peddling. What else is new!!!

Actually Matt has been involved in beer for a long time. Ask him about his mini-Kiss story; a classic.

No need to take these comments personal bobo and songczar. The truth is Kenevan doesn't know anything about craft beer, just likes to think he does. Its ok to admit it yourself, although if you work for him, I can see why you don't.

Matt has always been the first in line when it comes to looking for hand-outs and freebies from his few business relationships and anyone else he can take advantage of. Matt is about Matt first and foremost and that is well known.

This is too funny. I too have had my fair share of run-ins with Matt and they really haven't benefited me. Coming from a local bar owner who supports craft beer he has done pretty much nothing to convince me my business is more important than his. It's true, Matt comes first then everyone else follows.

@songczar - The best Matt Kenevan story was the beer dinner debacle at the Heartland Cafe last January. Lenny put a major "smack-down" on Matt "The shameless self promoter" Kenevan. LOL!!!
