At Love Beer Learning we love beer – and we want you to love it too! From online courses to learning resources we will help you build confidence in your understanding and enjoyment of the world’s favourite beverage.
My name is Joanne, some of you may know me as @awomansbrew
In 2008 I was handed a Sam Adams Boston Lager and I realised that not all beer was fizzy and yellow. The beer geek you are listening to now was born! Since then I have tried over 2800 different beers but it’s taken me some time to become confident in what I am tasting and in understanding beer styles. I recently passed my Cicerone Certified Beer Server exam and really feel that I can say that I know what I’m talking about when I describe beer. But that wasn’t always the case.
I’ve read books, taken courses, used apps and read reviews over the years and I would still sometimes doubt what I thought about a beer. It has taken a professional qualification to cement my confidence.
I don’t want that for you! I want you to be able to go up to the bar and choose with confidence a beer you know you will like. I want you to bravely describe the beer in your hand and know you are right. I want you to be able to experiment but also know exactly what you don’t like.
Through Love Beer Learning I will be developing the online courses and learning resources I wished had been available when I was teaching myself about beer. Learn with me how to taste beer and confidently describe it to someone else. Understand what you are tasting and why so you know what styles to order in the future. Grow an understanding of world beer cultures so you can be just as geeky as me!
I’m also a homebrewer and when I started I couldn’t find the kind of information I needed to help with small batch brewing. I brew around 6-9 pints of beer – perfect for experimenting and doing in your kitchen. I want to share my process with you so you can brew your own beer too.
So grab your favourite beer and come join my on a beer knowledge journey!
