Dave Quick

Tour Ambassador

I have been with Hop Head Beer Tours since April of 2015.  I started volunteering with bike tours on the weekends, since then, I have been focusing primarily on leading some of the bus tours on the weekends.
In my spare time I enjoy long distance running outdoors, and working outside in our gigantic garden.  I also love to spend time traveling to new places with my wife and trying new adventurous things.
