Derek Brown has one of those dream jobs that your high school counselor never tells you about. He drinks for a living. He's a cocktail and spirits writer, spirits judge and owner of acclaimed bars Mockingbird Hill, Eat The Rich, Southern Efficiency, The Passenger and the twice James Beard award nominated Columbia Room. In between, he travels around the world learning and teaching about how drinking is an integral part of our culture and values.
