Tim Skelton has lived in the Netherlands since 1989 and has spent more than two decades studying Dutch culture through the bottom of a glass. He doesn’t remember who it was that first weekend that gently prised the pils from his grasp and replaced it with a Duvel, but he is eternally grateful. Wife Amanda shares his beery passion and was a willing companion throughout the months of arduous research. Tim is also the author of Around Amsterdam in 80 Beers (Cogan & Mater).
Tim Webb (series editor) is an award-winning beer writer (Good Beer Guide Belgium — now in its 7th edition; World Atlas of Beer; Pocket Beer Book; LambicLand and others) and publisher (Around Bruges · Brussels · Amsterdam · Berlin · London in 80 Beers).
