Jamie fell in love with the New Zealand craft brewing scene shortly after moving here from his native Scotland in 2018. Last year, he began authoring his PhD, which aims to better understand relationships within the New Zealand craft brewing industry and how they influence the innovativeness of breweries. When he’s not working on his PhD, Jamie likes to spend his time and money in Auckland’s many breweries and bottle shops. His favourite beer styles are Belgian Tripels, Irish Reds, and well-hopped IPAs. Despite his love of craft beers, Tennent’s lager will always hold a special place in his heart.
