Welcome to the fifth ‘episode’ of our all new co-produced Desert Island Beers which features Des de Moor. Amongst many things Des is a beer writer. Based in Deptford, London and though born in England to an English mother and speaking English as a first language, his father was Dutch.
This week Des has published his first book, The CAMRA Guide to London’s Best Beer, Pubs and Bars, a comprehensive guide to one of the world’s great beer drinking cities and a timely celebration of the current renaissance of London brewing.
Since 2002 he’s been writing regular bottled beer reviews for the member magazines of Britain’s Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA), first for What’s Brewing, then for BEER, as well as the occasional feature on topics like beer retailing and pub walks, and was a contributor to 1001 Beers You Must Try Before You Die.
His areas of expertise are beers from the UK, Belgium, the Netherlands and France. (more…)
