I probably should have introduced myself earlier.
I'm Dan. I love trying new beers and I love visiting good pubs. What do I mean by good? I generally mean pubs that serve a good range of good beers. What do I mean by good beers? Oh I don't know, probably I mean beers that are brewed with integrity and passion, which have interesting, distinct flavours. Usually I also like beers with lots of hops.
Since 2003 I have also been rating beers. Here's my page on Ratebeer. I had a break between 2007-2010, but I have resumed my duties now.
I also like putting together Beer Maps >>>> here's one for Birmingham.
Given half a chance, I'd spend every other Saturday gallivanting round the country sampling the wares of hot new brewers, but on balance, it's probably better that I behave like a responsible parent.
Sorry, this post was a bit functional wasn't it? Probably necessary though.
