Sophie has been a journalist for more than a decade and a beer enthusiast for nearly a quarter of a century. She started writing about beer a few years ago and since then her work has appeared in publications including The Guardian, The Times, The Publican's Morning Advertiser and CAMRA's BEER magazine. She also works with breweries to raise their profile through PR and social media. In addition to her freelance journalism she writes a beer blog called A FemAle View. She believes that beer is The Best Drink in the World and hopes her Beer Academy Sommelier accreditation will enable her to work with pubs, restaurants and other licensed premises to offer more people the chance to enjoy it; see how well it goes with food and raise its reputation beyond the status of wine's poor relation.
