Once a video game maker, now a beer connoisseur

By 02.12.13

Meet Dr. Greg Zeschuk, video game maker/beer connoisseur, aka a god amongst men.

Late last year, Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk, the two men who founded BioWare (Dragon Age, Mass Effect), decided to step away from making games. Whereas Muzyka felt like mentoring entrepreneurs, specifically those who wish to create social change, Zeschuk had other ideas: to host a web-based interview show that centers on his love for craft beer.

And thus we have The Beer Diaries

Here’s a tad bit more background info on Dr. Zeschuk:

Dude went to medical school, became a doctor, and a good amount of money. But he got bored with medicine and decided to make his own video games. Almost right off the back his studio did very well, which resulted in even more money. That led to EA purchasing BioWare, who helped to produced the aforementioned games, resulting in even greater bank. Then the dude becomes bored once again and is now exploring his love for booze on YouTube.

I’d say God bless America, but he’s actually Canadian. Anyhow, here’s episode two, which just went live…

About Matt Hawkins... Matt Hawkins is an NYC based video game journalist, designer, consultant, and cultralist. He's been published in EGM, Kotaku, and MSNBC amongst others. Matt also makes comics and zines, is obsessed with cable access, gets into arguments with homeless people all the time, and once had his nipple bitten off during a one night stand. But that's neither here nor there.
