What you can offer as a writer/beer lover?

As I discover new beer styles I aim to blog about my experiences and reach people who may not have considered trying ales. I hope that my writing will be relatable to those who don’t know where to start with beer or find it a minefield. I want to help talk about beer in a more approachable way to get more people enjoying it!

Pieces of work by Sophie:

  • Collaboration Beer Projects

    My thoughts on the Rainbow Project 2018 as well as other collab projects Northern Powerhouse, Fullers & Friends and North Sea Bridges. **UPDATED** 29/9/18 Following news that the Rainbow Project will be passed on to a new generation.

  • Ein Prosit to Oktoberfest

    A brief history of Germany’s famous beer festival. I also compare some German Oktoberfest beers to others inspired by the festival.

  • Smoke Free Anniversary

    Its has been 10 years since the no smoking ban was introduced into the UK. Here are my thoughts on questions raised about how this has affected our pubs.
