Meet Pete -
Mr Amber Ales.
Tired of bland, corporate beers designed for the masses Pete is on a mission to brew the perfect pint. A passionate devotee of the hop and grain, combined with a degree in Chemical Engineering he is at his happiest experimenting in the brewery kitchen at Amber Ales.
Band: The Ramones; Underworld (now listens to: Radio Four!)
Current Book:Tricky... Tim Moore, Do Not Pass Go (a Monopoly trip round London); Why Does E-MC2 and why should we care? (Brian Cox) and Beer Advocate Magazine (www.beeradvocate.com) - still fab!
Beer: Imperial IPA of course, although Hop Devil runs it a close second; Dogfish Head 60 minute IPA, better than the 90 IMHO. But better on draft (sic) too...
Often heard saying: 'drink beer, be happy'.
Meet Jayn - the wife.
With a background in beer drinking and illustrious career in marketing, she tries to keep us on the straight and narrow whilst secretly planning her own range of botanical ales.
