A bit about me.

My name is Mike Massen, born ’64, solicitor, moved to Yorkshire in 1987 and not looked back. Have been married to the lovely Nicola for a couple of years now; no kids but a couple of cats who alternate between scratching the expensive leather sofa and knocking lumps out of each other.

Tired with crap lagers and the lumpen feeling that follows more than three pints of Guiness I tried a pint of Lady Jane at the Yewtree in Otley and Hallelujah and praise the Lord; my eyes and mouth were opened and not looked back. Like all true Aires (not that I believe any of that nonsense) I can’t do anything by halves and so do it by pints, currently drinking my way through as many different ales as I can get my hands on and being quite self obsessed (apparently another Aires trait) I feel compelled to tell the world about it.

I have no real knowledge of brewing, hops, double drop etc but I am learning and so consider all my quaffing as research in the name of knowledge.

Thank you for your time.
