The founder of Beer Studio, a die-hard beer enthusiast and considered one of the most passionate figures in the Swedish beer industry today. Through his writing and beer events he continues on his one-man mission to shatter the outdated views about beer and let as many people as possible in on his secret – that beer is the most amazing drink on the planet!
Darren, a former journalist who moved from England to Sweden back in 2000, has worked with beer for 17 years and travelled the world educating people about it. In 2009 he started the BeerSweden blog which quickly grew to become Sweden’s most popular beer site. He is the Svenska Ölfrämjandets Guldpin winner for 2011 for his contribution to beer culture in Sweden and co-author of ‘Öl: Smakerna, hantverket, Stilarna’.
Darren is a veteran of hundreds of beer talks across Europe and America and delivers fast-paced tastings laced with English humour and crammed full of useful (and sometimes not so useful) facts and information. When he’s not doing something with beer he’s probably asleep.
