About Me

My name is James Sanborn and I am a beer geek and an insurance nerd. I have been in the insurance business and a craft beer drinker since 1993. One of my favorite beers in college was Geary’s Hampshire Special Ale back when it was a seasonal and the first extreme beer I had was a Samual Adams Triple Bock in 1997 (I wish I had kept this bottle for my collection).

A few years ago I decided to document my journey through craft beer by starting a blog – Insurance Guy Beer Blog. Shortly after I realized there was a great group of craft beer people in Maine and beyond and quickly made lots of friends in the industry. Within a few months I decided to mix my business with my beer hobby and focus my efforts on insurance for the craft beer industry. The program has been far more successful than I anticipated which has led me to start New England Beer Insurance.

In my 20 years of insurance I have successfully completed both the Certified Insurance Counselor and the Certified Risk Manager programs through the SCIC, countless hours of continuing education and other insurance classes. I work with the clients of all sizes from the smallest owner operated shops to large multi-state operations with 100+ employees. There is no risk too big or too small and all get the personal service and experienced advice regardless of their premium size. I can help with all types of insurance including; property, liability, liquor, workers compensation, auto and employee benefits programs including; health, dental, disability, vision and voluntary benefits. If it is insurance I can help.

Last spring I participated in Sebago’s Brewing for a Cause program to gain a better understanding the brew process, potential issues and learn directly from the brewers. This was a great experience for a great cause and really helped me improve my knowledge and better serve my brewery clients.

If there is a brew fest, bottle release or other beer related event you will probably see me there.
