Nikita Richardson here!
Welcome to Ferment for Each Other. This website is a beer blog founded in January 2013 as a “beat” for my Writing and Reporting II class. I am a recent graduate of NYU’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute where my concentration was in Magazine Writing. I’m currently an editorial fellow at The L Magazine/Brooklyn Magazine, which are publications of Northside Media Group.
I was inspired to pursue journalism after creating my blog, Music for the Musically Challenged in February 2011 when a self-described “musically challenged” friend asked me to help him diversify his melodic tastes. While music journalism is my first passion, I am now gaining interest in general interest and trend journalism and would love to one day write and edit for the likes of New York Magazine or The New York Times Magazine.
Ferment for Each Other was created to convert those who claim to hate beer, teach the basics of beer and brewing and feature fascinating stories on beer culture in New York City.
While I’m no longer working on this blog, I still write about beer pretty regularly. You can check out my work at my official website.
