Welcome to my little experiment

I like drinking beer.
More to the point I like drinking good beer.
Not characterless, bland lager but good flavoursome real ale.

Now, being a creative type with more than just a little motivation (I need it - I work for one of the country's top advertising agencies), I figured why not give it a go for myself. This at least would guarantee a regular supply of something to my taste, close to home. Well, the kitchen counter-top to be precise. Then I thought why not set a goal, rather than just creating a half-decent drop? Something to keep me motivated and push me one step further along the road of "at least see if there's any other vocation out there in the world that you could do to keep you alive". It's a little pipe-dream I have, grass is always greener and all that.

So here I am, at a standing start, with no equipment, no real knowledge of the subject and no experience to help me. I intend to use this site as a little diary of successes and failures, and to chart my progress towards my goal.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you The Nunhead Brewery, founded on the 31st of July, 2006
