About Beers I've Known

Hi, I'm Steve (aka Stephanos). I was born in Yeovil, Somerset and moved to Northern Ireland in 2010 (via  Southampton University where I obtained a Masters degree in Chemistry with Ocean and Earth Science in 2009).

As will soon become apparent from reading  this blog I love food and cheese in particular, you'll find "Cheese and Beer Pairings of the Month" under the "Cheese" page. I'm currently writing a UK guide to cheese and beer pairing, check out www.cheeseandbeer.co.uk

for some other great beer blogs to kill your time on the loo/ in the bath/ in the bus/ at work.

I joined the British Guild of Beer Writers in 2012 and am a member of CAMRA, camRGB and Beoir. 
I'm currently a North Eastern Region rep for Beoir and also Ireland and Scotland admin for ratebeer.com.
