 About the author

Joshua James with Brew School Students

Joshua James is the founder of Home Brew Depot - a beer brewing school dedicated to teaching beer knowledge in a fun and enthusiastic way - and Craft Beer Adventure Club, an interview podcast (and now network TV show on Drink TV) where he home brews a classic beer with a famous brewer guest, asking questions about their life and career so far.

Originally from Northern England, he has hosted beer talks and tastings at national food festivals and beer festivals all over the globe and has taught beer brewing techniques in the US and throughout Europe. Given the opportunity, he would likely never stop talking about beer. 

He has been an avid brewer and beer evangelist for his entire adult life, and is always open to a conversation about the beautiful brew. He loves seeking out new brewing techniques and experimenting with past and future ideas.

He currently resides in Los Angeles, California where the beer scene is growing at an incredible rate around him - and he could not be happier.

The Concept

Hello Craft Beer Lovers!

As a visual learner, I have always used doodles and sketches to help retain important information. It's easy, quick and fun to revisit later. For that reason, I started applying sketches, doodles, and coloring to my own personal beer tasting notebook and loved the results! Every page becomes not only informative but a work of art in its own right.

This notebook is a collection of my most useful doodles (and of course space for your own) applied to beer industry terminology and techniques - meaning you will learn great beer tasting methods AND have a blast while doing it! 

Let's doodle while we drink!
