My name is Kendall Jones and I am a writer, broadcast personality, and event host based in Seattle. My areas of expertise include beer and brewing, travel, wine and food.
Examples of my published works are available here, divided into two categories:
Contact: email @ kendalljones.net
- Society of Professional Journalists
- North American Guild of Beer Writers
I was named One of Seattle’s Most Influential People of 2014, which I attribute to the growing popularity of good beer. Still, I’m honored to make the list.
While most people know me as the primary author of the Washington Beer Blog, I also write beer and travel stories for print publications. Increasingly, I am called upon to write about my other areas of expertise, primarily travel, food and wine. Most notably, I write regularly for Seattle magazine, Sip Northwest magazine, and other regional magazines, but am always interested in expanding my audience beyond the Pacific Northwest and have written for national publications like Beer Advocate and USA TODAY.
In addition to writing about beer, I am available to host corporate and private beer tasting events for your company, organization or party. Also, I am available for media appearances, have significant broadcast experience, and even appeared on NBC’s The Today Show.
Along with my wife and business co-founder, Kim Sharpe Jones, I produce and host Craft Beer + Food, Seattle’s premier food and beer pairing event, and am a staunch advocate of pairing fine foods with the best available beers.
