About Me


I got into beer after a long hiatus from my teenage years when I was weaned off of Ribena to cask ale. About ten years ago I suddenly got thirst pangs for my memories of bitter in beer gardens and discovered the daddy – Michael Jackson (no – not that one).

I’ve been drinking and reading beer with increasing discern for a decade and writing beer for a couple of years. It’s gone from writing tasting notes to tweeting, blogging and now building a website about the stuff. Most of my articles of faith about beer get blown away over time and I love it. It’s cathartic. It also means people keep redefining it and raising the bar (pun intended).
