BEER WRITING

EVENTS AND

TASTING SESSIONS

I’m a fully qualified and accredited Beer Sommelier.

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 even 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.

Do you know your beer’s recommended serving temperature?

Some people like their beer cold. It’s how beer drinkers have been taught to enjoy our brews for years. This is particularly true if you prefer a lager. But did you know that the colder your beer is the less you can detect its flavour and aroma? Other people like theirs a bit warmer. But…

A visit to Mills Brewing

I visited Mills Brewing in Gloucestershire, set up to produce beer with ‘minimum modern intervention’. I was also lucky to taste a preview of their first spontaneously fermented beer.
