Norman Miller grew up in the beer wasteland of Leominster, Mass., where he still resides with his dog, Foxy, and his beer fridge, Beatrice. He writes the popular Beer Nut column that appears weekly in the MetroWest Daily News and the daily Beer Nut blog on wickedlocal.com He developed his love of craft beer at the defunct Stone Coast Brewery in Laconia, N.H., and thinks New England has developed into one of the great brewing regions in the United States.
