James Smith

James Smith is a journalist who left the UK for Melbourne in 2008, was soon sucked into the nascent craft beer scene and has since been utterly consumed by it. He launched an online guide to all things Aussie beer, The Crafty Pint, in 2010, was Good Beer Week festival director until 2015 and has written two books on Aussie beer. These days, you’ll mostly find him spinning plates.
