First Beer Academy sommelier reunion

18 December, 2012

The Beer Academy sommeliers held their first annual reunion at the Parcels Yard at Kings Cross Station this week.

Just a year after the qualification was created, there are already

24 beer sommeliers. 

They used the reunion to share their ideas and experiences on how to educate and inspire people about beer. 
 Sommelier Craig Steven said: “It was the first time that I had met my fellow sommeliers and I was amazed by the breadth of their different skills and interests.

“There are brewers, pub owners, beer writers, bloggers, beer event organizers, a professional beer taster and Nigel Sadler – who probably fits into all camps.

“They had a wealth of stories on how becoming a Sommelier had opened doors to spread the word about beer.

“The beer market is fiercely competitive; beer knowledge and quality are the vital elements if we want more people to discover the pleasure of enjoying a beer or two.”
