Jeff Cioletti’s tenure in liquid literacy has exposed him to some of the best libations the world has to offer and given him access to the producers and purveyors of such fine refreshments. He combines his love of drink with a passion for travel and one usually involves the other. He is the editor in chief of Craft Spirits Magazine, a publication of the American Craft Spirits Association.

Before that he served for fourteen years as an editor at Beverage World magazine, including eight years as editor in chief. He’s also the author of the books, “Drink Like a Geek,” “SakePedia,” “The Drinkable Globe,” “The Year of Drinking Adventurously” and “Beer FAQ.”

Jeff is the founder of DrinkableGlobe.com and host of The Drinkable Globe Podcast and has been a frequent contributor to a variety of publications including Beverage Media, BevNet, Beverage Industry, The Takeout, SevenFifty Daily and CraftBeer.com. Additionally, he’s certified as an International Kikisake-shi (sake sommelier) by Sake Service Institute International and the winner of four North American Guild of Beer Writers awards.

Drink Like a Geek marries Jeff's twin passions for alcohol and geek culture: in the early 2000s, Jeff directed two documentaries about Star Wars Episode I (the first in the build-up to its release, and the second after fans realized it sucked). There will be cocktail recipes throughout Drink Like a Geek -- interpretations of Miruvor of Middle Earth, Dornish Red and Arbor Gold of Westeros, etc. -- but the emphasis will be more on getting to know various subcultures than in genre recipe books like The Cocktail Guide to the Galaxy. That emphasis should be clear in the intro chapter included at the end of the proposal, which is about an experience Jeff had crossing enemy lines and drinking Romulan Ale at Dragon*Con in Atlanta.
