Hello and welcome to the Around The World Blog.

Our blog is hosted by Neil Kiddie, who back in February won our competition to become the official #Biertaster. All it took was a thirst for beer, a large accumulation of bottle caps and a little luck. Neil has a real passion for beer having worked in the industry for some time and brewed his own for over 2 years now.  Having been fortunate to try a range of weird and wonderful brews, he will be sharing his experiences of all things beer related ranging from new discoveries, brewery tours, festivals and any interesting news coming from within the industry. Comments are welcome and we look forward to hearing your experiences. Keep an eye out for our competitions with prizes ranging from brewery tours to bar tabs to be won. All reviews are Neil’s own. We hope you enjoy reading.
