Hailing from Donegal in Ireland, Sarah's career started as a Formulation Chemist for ICI in England in the 1980's. It was here that she first gained an interest in beer styles and flavours before moving to Germany to work as an Industrial Chemist where her knowledge and love of beer expanded to the traditional German varieties. Sarah has recently started her own brewing venture in Ireland called N17 and has 2 products to market - a Rye Ale and an award-winning Oatmeal Stout. She is a strong supporter of the Craft Beer scene in Ireland and believes her qualification as a Beer Sommelier will position her to promote the emerging craft beer sector in a positive light, making it more approachable and understandable to a variety of consumers.
