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.
