I started writing about Nova Scotian craft beer for the Halifax Magazine blog when I filled a mat leave at Metro Guide Publishing in 2016. My editor and I both love talking about and trying new beers from local breweries, so why not offer a monthly column in the print edition?
In 2017 we did. In my column, I strive to tell readers about new beers and breweries in a way that appeals to beer nerds and those who want to get into beer alike. Our city has enough BJCP judges writing jargon-filled blogs. This is beer journalism in its best form: easy to understand, offering context when needed, and just plain fun to read.
Today, my beer coverage is one of the most consistent traffic drivers on the website.
