Hallie Beaune, Beer Expert

Hallie Beaune grew up in Arizona where her

first beer was from a can (and it wasn’t good). 

She earned a B.A. in Theatre at the University

of Puget Sound and moved into the world

of professional theatre.  Hallie’s roles in the

Tony Award-winning play Metamorphoses took

her to the famed Mark Taper Forum in Los


Her Beer Journey brought her to the famed beer bar Father’s Office in Santa Monica, CA where she met fellow Beer chick Christina Perozzi, and became a manager. At Father’s Office she taught the illustrious “F.O. Beer School” and was featured on the hit cable foodie show, “After Hours with Daniel Boulud” as F.O’s resident expert, and on KNBC Evening News and KTLA Morning News. 

Hallie writes about beer for the web magazine “The Rundown” and for Beerforchicks.com, spreading the good word of beer all over Los Angeles. She has worked with Christina on sold-out beer dinners at critically acclaimed L.A. restaurants like Rustic Canyon Winebar & Seasonal Kitchen, which was featured in The Celebrator Magazine. Hallie currently resides in L.A. as an actress, author, and beer lover.

Hallie’s favorite beer is an earthy and complex Orval.
