A love of rock music first enticed Dave Orman to start working at his local rock pub in Oxford back in 2003. A passion for beer quickly followed along with an understanding of cellar and real ale upkeep. After years of dedication to the pub, the hard work was rewarded when he became manager in 2006. In 2008 Dave left England and began a new life in Sweden. Over the course of his time here, he has progressed from a barman to now being in charge of 3 different bars in the Umeå Folkets Hus conference centre he currently works at. Dave is also in charge of training the bar staff and setting beer pairings for the courses on the menus. Working closely with beer and food in the restaurants led Dave to persue and ultimately pass the sommelier exam.
