My name is Mick Saxton. Beer has been an important and enjoyable part of my life for around fifty years. During that time so much has changed for the beer drinker; many improvements but but also some losses, and I believe the current boom in interest in the new wave of ‘ales’ brings with it plenty to question and discuss.
In these pages I’d like to talk about beer, the drinking of it, the brewing of it, and how and where it’s served. Along with a celebration of this wonderful drink I’d also like to take stock and discuss the good and bad amongst the changes of recent times.
