“Just write a short bio for the site” – these are the words that fill every writer with chilling dread.

First person or third? Maybe second person? You think that’s a bad idea.

Do I go funny, serious, absurdist? How many words am I allowed? Maybe just a picture?

Hadyn drinks a Tui, and quite liked it because it was a hot day

Yes, perfect.

I’m Hadyn. I’ve been writing about beer officially since 2008 and unofficially for much longer. I used to write a monthly column for a magazine that doesn’t exist any more.

This blog, Wortsmith, is a new venture in collaboration with Grills Meats Beer. I’ll be biased towards them but all their stuff is pretty great any, so it’s easy.
