Twitter is a bit of a phenomenon for the beer industry. You’d struggle to find another area that utilises it quite so well. This is largely because you’d also struggle to find a more friendly industry. Even the most bitter rivals would share a bag of malt if one of them was desperate. Twitter gives us beer geeks unrivalled access to the beer professionals and, because everyone’s so nice, those professionals will bend over backwards to answer questions and provide experienced insight into the one thing we all love (that’s beer by the way).

Twitter has given me the opportunity to get to know many interesting people. But it’s always a little hard to have a conversation with a limited word count. So it seemed like it might be a good idea to ask some of these people some questions and give them the opportunity to respond in more than 140 characters. So here are the “meet” interviews where we’ll get to know a bit more about the pros and hopefully learn something from them.
