About Me

Beer Writing

My writing focuses on beer related travel around the world, beer festivals, local beer events and other beer topics of interest to me.

Other than here, I'm a regular columnist in What's BrewingHeywyre, and previously, I wrote for BC Craft Beer News (folded in Sept 2014). Other freelance beer writing includes a piece in Stay.com on Vancouver beer and writing beer and HR related content for BrewingWork. My work has been posted on the University of Vermont blog, BeerMeBC.com, Sommbeer.com and I wrote over 600 beer/brewing-related trivia questions for the Beat the Brewmaster app.

You won't find beer reviews here as I personally don't read any. I prefer to drink and make my own determination.

Other Beer Stuff

I've been growing hops in our backyard since 2013. We currently have 5 varietals - Cascade, Centennial, Saaz, Golding & Willamette. These puppies grow about 26' now and yield about 10 lbs. from each plant. If you want to learn how to grow hops, it's pretty simple - read here.

As a co-founder of Farmhouse Fest, I encourage you to attend this fantastic saison and wild ale festival held in Vancouver, BC each summer.

I'm also a novice homebrewer and have a lot (A LOT) to learn. So far the best ones I've made are a Saison with elderflower & peppercorn, a smoked vanilla Porter and a Belgian Strong.
