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

Captain of the good ship Pint Sized for 6 years and one of the YouTube’s foremost beer communicators – I set out to change people’s perceptions of beer reviewing and I’ve had a stellar time doing it. From producing collaborations with other culinary creators and travel bloggers, hosting an internationally-distributed Snapchat Discover series for food network, Tastemade, to being nominated for numerous BGBW and BrewDog Awards over the years, topped off with picking up the inaugural BGBW Beer Citizen Communicator Award in 2017. I pride myself on putting together funny, slick, informative and award-winning videos – breaking the mould of beertubing.

What you can offer as a writer/beer lover?

Since launching Pint Sized back in 2014, Oli has enjoyed being welcomed into the wonderful beer community. From offering Belgian beer crash courses in Brussels to being a finalist at the 2017 and 2018 BrewDog awards. I’ve produced international collaborations with other culinary creators and travel bloggers and it’s even taken me to LA to produce a Snapchat Discover series with Food Network, Tastemade. I pride myself on getting the best beers and putting together funny, slick and informative videos – breaking the mould of beertubing.

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

Networking, access to events and coverage within the industry.
