Melissa Cole

Melissa Cole is one of the UK’s leading beer experts and a respected international beer judge, with over a decade of writing, broadcasting and evangelizing about the world’s favourite drink. She’s not shy of the practical side either, regularly joining up with leading craft brewers to produce collaboration brews which have proved popular with consumers and gained her respect within the industry. Her goal in life is to demystify beer jargon and to help more people enjoy quality brews, whether through the pages of this book or her popular blog Taking the Beard Out of Beer, or at her regular appearances at top food and drink festivals worldwide.
