Alex Swensen graduated from Clark University with a degree in Photography and Graphic Design in 2011. His passion for craft beer flourished with his collection of labels, however, the quality of the contents of the bottles quickly overshadowed their packaging. After working as an archives assistant at the Yale University Art Gallery, Mr. Swensen’s interest in craft beer led him to accept a job at Harpoon Brewery in Boston, MA. He hosts beer tastings alongside his father, Yale University’s Chief Investment Officer David Swensen, offering insight into the developing craft beer culture.
Mr. Swensen is a craft Beer enthusiast spending time tasting, appreciating, brewing and studying beer’s history. He also enjoys photography, and computers/technology.
