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

Being an original Bamberg citizen i can guide you through all the Franconian beer history, but i also studied the faszinating background of all the world’s beer and beer styles.

What you can offer as a writer/beer lover?

Just ask ūüėȬ†Being an original Bamberg citizen i can guide you through all the Franconian beer history, but i have also studied the faszinating background of all the world’s beer and beer styles.¬†In addition i am a photographer, so i can deliver images for your publication, too. My publications so far cover the actual and historic beer scene of Germany (in particular Franconia, Berlin, Saxonia, Thuringia and Bavaria), Belgium, UK and USA – and also the world’s history of beer.

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