About Stephen Beaumont
Stephen Beaumont is one of the world's most authoritative voices on beer today, as well as a widely recognized writer on spirits, food and travel.
As co-author of both 'The World Atlas of Beer' (2012), published in eleven international editions, and two editions of 'The Pocket Beer Guide' (2013 & 2014), Stephen has amassed an unparalleled understanding of what’s going on in the fast-paced and expanding world of beer today.
