BEER WRITING

EVENTS AND

TASTING SESSIONS

I’m a fully qualified and accredited Beer Sommelier.

People are increasingly choosing to drink less but drink better, which makes finding the right choice more important than ever.

My job is to give people confidence when they’re choosing a beer. This could be deciding what to drink at the bar, or picking what to have with a meal, or knowing what to recommend to a customer in need of guidance.

I introduce people to beer styles and teach them to find and recognise the flavours they love.

You can hire me for freelance beer writing and tasting sessions.
