Hey! I’m Edd. I love making things—especially drinks. But first, a little story:
Towards the end of his life, my grandfather told me something that stuck with me. He was checked into the hospital. I would go visit him almost everyday, sit on a chair and spend time with him. Most of the time he’d be asleep, and when he was awake, I’d read him the news. One day, he told me something that changed the way I lead my life. He told me that he was very grateful for me and coming in a just spending time. He said that the best gift you can give someone, is your time.
From that point on, I made it a point to prioritize and spend time with my family & closest friends—gathered around either with food or drinks. Creating things fascinate me. And crafting liquid things is my jam.
One of my absolute favorite things to do is to gather around a table, set some snacks, coffee or cocktails, and have meaningful, & thoughtful conversations for hours with people I care about. And having the ability to craft tasty, good looking drinks is a big plus.
As screens and internet experiences proliferate, now more than ever, it’s important that we stand rooted in the joys of face to face experiences—or as they say—IRL experiences. Drinks is a powerful tool to bring us together—make new friends & strengthen bonds. Do you need fancy cocktails or pour overs for this? Off course not! A cheap bottle of something or machine coffee does the same trick. But since you are reading this, on this site, you want to serve something better. You and your guests deserve it!
I can’t wait to see what you do, and if you share online, hashtag #BrewersAndShakers so we can find you! You can also find me on Instagram & YouTube.
Drink less but better, responsibly and always be good to each other!
