About the Author

Mike Cortez was born and raised in Houston, TX and currently resides in Austin. He has worked as a writer and photographer for many different publications and websites ranging from the Houston Chronicle to the Thrillist. With a deep appreciation for writing about the art of food and drinks, Mike runs the blogs Bite Me Austin and Texas Beer Guide.
