REVIEWS

Crystal has a special charm and can really connect with her audience. She has a very friendly way of describing beer that is not intimidating for the novice. She makes her presentations engaging. The audience came to hear Crystal and wouldn’t leave – even in a fire alarm. She had a great turn-out — we even had to turn people away.

Thank you very much for the truly wonderful Beer Sensory Experience you put together for the Canadian Homebuilder’s Association National Conference in Halifax for 400 delegates. The thoroughness, care and special attention you gave to every aspect of the experience was greatly appreciated!  From the beer and food pairings you created for our reception menu, to the gorgeous sensory display, to the pairing wheels and trivia ice-breaker questions and answers—everything was so cohesively done, with so many extra touches. We were all really blown away!

Crystal Luxmore is an outstanding beer reporter who is always one-step ahead of the latest beer trend or newest release. I’ve called on her to lead tastings of Ontario Craft beers at major events, knowing that her excellent palate, organization and professionalism, beer knowledge and engaging demeanour will deliver.

Luxy’s Beer School refined my beer palate and brain!

Crystal’s Beer-cathalon presentation at the 2014 Because Beer Craft Beer Festival exceeded my expectations. It was awesome—she brought her big beer wheel, taught folks about off-flavours, food pairing, and beer pouring. Everyone loved it! She’s very knowledgeable, engaging, and charming to boot! I’d recommend her to anyone, and hope she’ll come back next year.
Brandi Lee MacDonald, Co-Founder, Because Beer Craft Beer Festival
As Beerworking’s Certified Cicerone, Crystal is adept at engaging a large group of young professionals, and working the room one-on-one to chat with people about beer, business and food. She designs engaging questions, matches our caterer’s dishes to the night’s brews, and leads a beer education session with confidence and finesse.
