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!“.
