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.

Goose Island Bourbon County Stout: the beer that laid the golden egg

Black Friday isn’t a thing in the UK. It’s an American import that, like Oreos, is gaining popularity despite the fact that it adds very little of cultural value to the already perfectly good deal we have going on over here thank you very much. But capitalists gotta capital, and so it goes on and we…
