Zoë Andrews: Beer, photography, music, popular culture, architecture and transport are a few of my passions when I’m not working hard in retail-land!

I am the editor of Reading and Mid-Berkshire CAMRA’s Mine’s A Pint magazine. I’m passionate about bringing people into beer, creating a space for diversity and inclusion.  I’ve also been on a journey with alcohol-free beer since 2017 and  was a judge for the 2020 AF Beer Club Awards. I hosted online interviews with Mikkeller (among others) for the 2021 AF Beer Club Festival thanks to Robin Lomax, the creator of the AF Beer Club.
