What is the one thing you'd like to tell visitors to the Guild's website?

 I am a freelance beer writer and broadcaster based in Brighton.

What you can offer as a writer/beer lover?

As a university academic with a social science background, I am interested in how beer has shaped, and continues to impact, our development within communities across the world.

I achieved my General Certificate in Brewing from the Institute of Brewing and Distilling in 2015. I am a active home brewer and have also been involved in collaboration brews with commercial breweries. I have experience judging and tasting beers.

I produce and present Fermentation Radio Show, a monthly beer and brewing show which can be heard via FM and DAB on Radio Reverb, and is also available as a podcast via iTunes and Podomatic.

What do you like most about being a Guild of Beer Writers member?

I enjoy the support of other Guild members, particularly in terms of staying connected to the ever-changing beer scene. I also appreciate the access to information and resources that Guild membership provides.

  • Fermentation Radio Show

    Fermentation Radio Show – the UK’s only beer and brewing show on FM radio – broadcasts live once a month on the award-winning Radio Reverb. The show features interviews with national and international brewers, articles on brewing techniques and homebrewing, food and beer matching, and beer-related news and views. You can catch up with previous shows on iTunes.
