Here's just a little about us.

How did it start? Well, I sold my car and bought a 15 passenger shuttle bus and started doing brewery tours for folks in Los Angeles, California. This was back in 2012. My wife, Cindy, joined the business the next year.


Things went well. We both got our Cicerone certifications (a 5-Hour test all about beer). We bought a few more buses, I bought a real car and as the beer scene of LA grew, we were there to show eager craft beer enthusiasts around.

Then 2020 came. We ended up selling our buses and taking our business online, doing virtual beer tastings mostly for corporate groups, and as it turns out, it's really, really fun. 

We're looking forward to having a beer with you. 

Certified Cicerone Hal Mooney


That's me. I'm a Certified Cicerone® & the founder of Your Beer Friend. I wanna be the guy you text when you don't know what beer to order at a bar. I like all beer, seriously, but I really, really like Pilsners. 

Certified Cicerone® Cindy Mooney


This is my wife, Cindy. She's a Certified Cicerone® & also the founder of Your Beer Friend. Cindy scored a perfect 100 on the food pairing portion of the exam. Go ahead and ask her what beer pairs best with carrot cake (it's carrot cake).
