About this blog

As of October 2012, I am no longer drinks columnist with the Irish Examiner Weekend. See the home page of this blog for more details. I’m leaving much of the info I posted here in case it might be helpful. Thank you. 

This blog started as an extension to the columns about beer, wine and cider I used to contribute to The Irish Examiner up until October 20, 2012. I’ve quit those columns, and there’s a post over here explaining some of the details.

As an extension of this ‘about’ section, I put up a comprehensive post about my approach over here.  I’ve left it up in case it’s of some use, albeit in a light grey font and interspersed with that great big tag pointing out I’m no longer a columnist on these topics.
