Happy to Announce a New Geek to the Team

The Beer Geeks are happy to announce a new member of the team; Dorian Mills. We are hoping that Dorian will be a regular contributor and are sure that you will enjoy his reviews.

Look for his first review next week!

Dorian's bio is below.

"I'm a 31 year old with a taste for interesting beers. My interest started back in my early twenties when my OCD for organization led me to start putting together a list of beers I'd tried with reviews and star ratings that I have since misplaced on an old 3.5" floppy disc somewhere. I remember it contained over 100 beers and mostly consisted of the regular beer store stocks, as this was long before I knew of the craft brewery phenomenon. However even back then I realized the benefits of distinction in taste as I separately reviewed Molson Canadian on draft, in the bottle and in the can. But after a while, all the big names taste the same.

Now the craft brewing movement has drawn me back to my roots with hundreds of interesting and delicious brews made just miles away that give the Big Guys a run for their money on taste, value and style. These beers deserve a voice and I'm happy to be one geek more in the choir.

My own tastes run the gamut from crisp, bitter European pilsners and lagers, to earthy simple english style ales, all the way to the darkest of dark, cask fermented, flavour packed imperial stouts. I'd also like to tackle as many seasonals as I can. I find them fascinating because of their limited runs, fearless experimentation and efforts to capture the essence of a season in a bottle. My blind spot is IPAs. Sadly, heavy hopping is not my style and I'll leave those tastings to more objective geeks.

Primary I'm an artsy guy who appreciates anything that is created with care and imagination to bring people an experience they will remember. What better outlet then, than craft beer?"
