Having honed his taste buds drinking beer, lots of beer - then writing about it (Brewing Britain and The Perfect Pint). Andy can now be found in people's gardens. If you see him in your garden, don't be alarmed, he's not after your washing, he's after your weeds, and if you ask nicely he turn them into an array of delights. These garden experiments can be found in his books - Booze for Free and Fermenting Everything.
Andy is always experimenting with wild plants and drinks. He also currently experimenting with a bit of fiction and a non fiction idea that he calls the NEW WILD ORDER - newwildorder.com - which toys with the idea that the natural world could be Utopian. Although, at the time of writing it involves drinking mead and having the occasional wild boar sausage.
