About me

Gender MALE
Location Leeds, West Yorkshire, United Kingdom
Introduction I'm a freelance writer and specialist beer retailer. I was the British Guild of Beer Writers' Writer of the Year 2008. My first book, "500 Beers" is now available to buy on Amazon. Or in bookshops near you, hopefully.

I jointly own the specialist beer shop Beer-Ritz in Headingley, Leeds, West Yorkshire, as well as the wholesaler Beer Paradise and the mail order service Beer-Ritz

I also run tasting events for fun and profit - see my website The Beer Boy

I'm also ploughing through my vinyl collection and blogging about that here
