Ben Canaider and Greg Duncan Powell write and talk about drinking for a living.
Their ramblings often include beer. But they don't just write about it, they drink it as well: as a social lubricant, to stave of death by thirst, and just because they feel like it.
As drinks critics, they're not afraid to separate the pretenders from the real deal. In writing this beer guide they have combined their strict professionalism with their undisciplined enjoyment of sinking back a cold one.
