My name is Jon.
I am a full-time PR man, dad to a tween queen daughter, long-term partner to my long-suffering other half, libertarian and part owner of a crazy cat.
I read and write for fun, like good music, football, cricket and ice hockey and my other tastes tend to err on the geekier side of life.
You could say that brewing is in my blood… my dad is fond of the odd tipple, my grandad – like his brother – was a true beer aficionado and his father and grandfather before him brewed commercially – and ran pubs – back in the Black Country, where my ancestral line begins.
I have always wanted to try brewing my own sweet, amber nectar and this blog will chart the successes, failures, misadventures and victories along my homebrew journey.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy!
