"Having worked with Mark during his time at Everards he is undoubtedly one of the most knowledgeable brewers I have met. His understanding from grain to glass is hugely insightful."
Keith BottManaging Director & OwnerTitanic Brewery
"For many years, Mark has been passionate about sharing beer knowledge.
Mark confidently presents the facts but also invites the audience to share theirs – particularly their thoughts on beer and food matching. Rather than simply talk about our own beers and brewery, Mark presents an interesting insight into the history and brewing of beer together with some social history and we always get great feedback from these events."
Stephen GouldManaging DirectorEverards Brewery Limited
"Mark's passion for educating others about all types of beer is unrivalled in my experience. A great example of this was his involvement in the creation of Cyclops – aimed at educating customers and bar staff with a simple-to understand graphic. It is now the beer-education scheme used by many and still develops under his watchful eye to ensure consistency in scoring.
Having worked in many other (and larger) pub companies and brewers I can say there aren't many around who can turn an assessment of beer quality into an education piece that leaves the recipient wanting more. As a beer sommelier I have no doubt he will continue to flourish."
David BremnerDirector of MarketingRobinsons Brewery Ltd
"Mark has a great passion for the brewing industry and this comes across in the training sessions he does for publicans and customers, always leaving them inspired and enthused about beer."
Alastair MacnaughtOperations ManagerThe Cask Marque Trust
"Mark has inspirational beer knowledge that stems from his hard-won hands-on brewing and cellar management know-how. His 'meet the brewer' and beer-and-food-matching presentations are entertaining and delivered with real skill."
Matt WrightFounder and Editor-in-ChiefGreat Food Club
"We worked with Mark to develop & deliver our Beer Club Live events across a range of pubs. Mark was instrumental to these events as he selected the beer & food, developed the presentation and acted as the host of the event delivering the key messages . The evenings were a huge success with very positive feedback from all those who attended."
