This post introduces Grant, who kindly reviews beers for us over on his YouTube Channel.  You can also find him on Twitter and his newly started blog.

Who are you and what do you do?   My name is Grant and I am a YouTube vlogger and I make videos about anything beer or homebrew related.

How did you get into this?  I started watching people brewing on YouTube initially with Craigtube and other beer videos. I was amazed a whole community was out there and there was another side to homebrewing.  I then discovered an old work friend was brewing, however, he was using the all-grain method and producing beer videos, something I never thought I would do.
My YouTube channel features videos ranging from how to videos, commercial beer reviews, book and equipment reviews. I continue to expand my brewing knowledge and equipment that I own each year as I’m a sucker for a gadget and shiny brew equipment. I regularly review the products I purchase as I like to spread the word to others and hopefully encourage other people into this fantastic hobby.

What is your favourite beer?  I would have to say anything by The Kernel Brewery. I have not had a bad beer from them and I always get there beers when I can.

What do you think makes a great beer?   Balance a beer that manages to allow all the ingredients to shine when tasting.

What is your favourite style of beer?   This is a tricky one – it changes on a weekly basis but if I had just one, a good stout really hits the spot.

If you had to pick, which would be your top three beers in the whole world?   Kernel  Export Stout , Gales Seafarers Ale and Fullers London Pride.

What is the best part of beer reviewing ?   It has to be the variety of beers that are now available to try it really is a great time for beer.

You are stuck on a desert island what three things are you taking with you?   Hop seeds, barley and a pint glass.

Thanks to Grant for taking part. You can view all of the reviews Grant has done for our beers here.
