New Beer Blog Coming Soon!

Me, Krispy

Me, Krispy, showing off a mobile app I wrote for my local CAMRA Peterborough Beer festival

I’m Kristian ‘Krispy’ Brown – full time developer, part time darts writer, and life-long real ale drinker!   Well OK, I probably started at about 16.. my first CAMRA beer festival visit back when I was a mere 17 (naughty boy!).. and I’ve been hooked ever since.

I’ll be sharing my thoughts on beer, brewing, pubs and breweries!   I also do the odd spot of home brewing, so I’ll re-post here articles I have previously written on my efforts, with some tips n tricks (hopefully some will be of use!).

I wanted to create this blog to celebrate beer… or as a certain comedy landlord says, “all hail the ale!”.  Drinking is getting  a slating in the press, even though actual figures prove that we are drinking less than ever – but for some reason the Daily Mail and upper class politicians want us to think there is an epidemic of evil in our pubs.

I wish we could return to the proper pub – most town centres are now all ‘bars’ – and while they may be improving their selection of beers, they seem to have lost the heart and community of a real pub.

Oh and I also will probably talk about darts a fair bit, being a huge fan, and friend of many of the PDC professional players.  I also run one of the biggest and most popular PDC darts websites; “Darts, Beers & Cheers!“.

EX-CAMRA member and real ale and craft ale fan. I've left CAMRA as I feel they've become more about gaining members (and money) and their petty narrowmindedness around the whole craft/keykeg/cask puts me off them. Good beer is good beer! I do the odd brew myself - having spent a couple of grand more than I should on home brew kit (Braumeister and SS Brewtech gear). Always learning about the craft and the ingredients. I've a blog post here about a day with a local craft brewer making a new beer. I can often be found propping up the bar at Peterborough's best (only) craft beer bar, The Stoneworks. 22 lines of great beer, and decent gin too! I'm probably known by too many of my hometown's landlords, oops. I created the local CAMRA Peterborough Beer festival mobile web app several years ago, and am a regular festival judge helping pick the champion beers. Developer (PHP, Wordpress, Java), Webmaster of many sites, husband and cat owner. I also help put on DIY Punk gigs in my spare time, as part of group of mates called "The Scary Clown Presents...".
