I was born within sniffing distance of a brewery which prides itself on its pint, so the pleasures of ale drinking ought to be in my blood. Yet, I'm ashamed to admit now, I was I think nearly nineteen years old before I tried the true pleasures of a real pint, though I'd been drinking the characterless megakeg stuff for a year or so after reaching legal drinking age in the UK and somewhat timidly before then, good boy that I was not wanting to run foul of the law. When not enjoying a good pint, which I do in sensible quantities once or twice a week usually, I've worked in broadcasting, catering, customer services, for a music company and am a published freelance writer (though not yet on beer!). I'm also a member of MENSA but don't let that put you off.

Congrats South Carolina! The State House just approved the so called "Pint Bill" that will allow breweries to sell 48 ounces of beer to a person every 24 hours. No more tiny samples if you're wanting a pint - as long as the Governor signs the bill.
