Helen Wilson – Editor
Hey! I’m Helen. I have a background in publishing and creative writing, I previously held a job on Edge magazine. I’ve worked in and around the beer industry for a few years now. I’ve travelled a fair bit and found myself immersed in the NZ craft beer culture for a spell, and that’s where I really found a passion for this social lubricant. I love a classic earthy Pilsner, but I couldn’t be without something sour and fruity – just mention the word ‘Foudres’ and I’m there! When I’m not working around beer, I’ll usually be caught drinking it at home on my narrowboat or playing roller derby for my team, The Birmingham Blitz Dames.
Tim Jones – Founder
Hey, I’m Tim! I fell seriously in love with beer while travelling with my wife from the UK to the U.S back in 2013. Visiting some epic craft beer bars and beer festivals along the way, we discovered some amazing brews. This inspired me to create BeerYeti to share my passion, while educating everyone on everything beer! The site was originally set up as ‘a bit of a laugh’, but this soon spiralled into something a little more serious!
Ryan Gilbert – Assistant Editor
Hey, I’m Ryan! I’ve always enjoyed craft drinks and spirits and have always been a big whisky drinker. It was at a whisky festival where I tried my first ever craft beer, a Founders KBS! After that I fell in love with imperial stouts and darker beers in general. Travelling around Europe and Asia really opened my eyes to the range of amazing beers out there, Poland in particular sticks out as an amazing destination for craft beer. When I’m not drinking craft beer you can usually find me with a whisky or tequila in hand!
Peter Connolly – Design
Hey, I’m Peter. I have a background in design having previously run my own web, print and design business. I also have a passion for event organising, and I’m currently the Chair of the Birmingham St Patrick’s Festival. I have always enjoyed craft beer and the small independent venues and breweries associated with it. This year I merged these two interests into one event, working with DigBrew Co, another 8 Irish breweries and 10 Irish bands to create Digbeth’s first OktoberFeis – a celebration of Irish music and craft beer. If I’m not drinking in Digbeth, I’ll be in the Jewellery Quarter.
