5 Minute Mav: Crystal Luxmore
Vanity Fair made the Proust Questionnaire more famous than … well Proust himself did. And now Quench has it’s own spin. It’s simple. 5 questions to the mavericks out there. Every Thursday we’ll be profiling one mav or another. In our inaugural 5 Minute Mav we’re talking to Tidings contributor, Crystal Luxmore, who recently earned her beer sommelier Certified Cicerone designation.
What was your first beer?
A Labatt 50 that my best friend and I stole from her parents on a camping trip. I still like that beer.
If you were dropped on a desert island, what would you bring?
A sharp knife, pictures of my family and friends, a solar-powered CD player and some Bob Marley, Beach Boys and Enter the Wu-Tang, the 30 or more books on my shelves that I haven’t read yet, and a case of Baladin X-Fume for those long, lonely nights.
Cheese or chocolate with beer?
Loose Change. I am obsessed with the sixties and quests for empowerment.
What is your favorite journey?
The Southeast Asia backpacker loop — Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia and Indonesia. I spent a few months there in my early 20s and they were some of the best of my life.
