Meet The Team

 

 

Here's a list of the Beoir team starting with the elected officials and then moving on to other positions such as the Beoir regional representatives.

Elected Officers and Admin Team

Reuben Gray

Reuben Gray (Saruman) - Chairman - Site Admin

Joined Irish Craft Brewer in late 2008, founding member of Beoir in 2010.

Reuben has been writing about beer on his blog The Tale of The Ale since January 2009 and has been actively involved in raising awareness of our independent micro breweries throughout all this time. He also writes for various publications and is the publisher and editor of Beoir Magazine. An avid amateur brewer and beer drinker. Reuben got in to craft beer in the US in 2004 but it wasn't until late 2008 that he was introduced to the Irish craft beer scene by a Scotsman living in Prague, married to an American and visiting Ireland.

Often hosts talks and tastings and is a regular judge at beer competitions.

Elected to the position of Chair in June 2013.

Andrew Moore
Andrew Moore (Andrew) - Site Admin & App Developer

Joined Irish Craft Brewer in early 2010, founding member of Beoir in 2010.

Andrew is a well adjusted male in his forties with a weird sense of humour and a sincere love of comedy in any form. He brews beer occasionally and is an amateur chocolatier. Andrew came up with the idea of developing an app to integrate with the Beoir directory that uses the built in GPS capabilities of a smartphone to show people what is available in their location. Andrew is a fundamental part of the Beoir team as an admin and app developer.

Barry Masterson (Barry M) - Site admin

Co-founder of Irish Craft Brewer, March 2007, co-founder Beoir, July 2010. Site admin and general dogsbody. 

Barry set up IrishCraftBrewer.com (ICB) with Séan Billings in March 2007 to provide for an online community of home brewers and beer lovers in Ireland. Over a couple of years, ICB grew, and after being approached by the EBCU, it became clear that a more formal organisation was needed to represent the conscientious beer drinkers of Ireland. Despite having emigrated to Germany in 2008, Barry, Séan and John Duffy (who had joined the ICB team by then) proposed the formation of Beoir to the ICB membership, and the rest is history.

Barry is still active as part of the team maintaining and managing the Beoir site, despite being two years into a farmhouse renovation, and is a semi-active beer blogger since summer 2008. He is desperately waiting for more Irish beer to be exported to Germany.

John Duffy (TheBeerNut) - Site Admin

John Duffy

Joined Irish Craft Brewer in 2007, founding member of Beoir in 2010.

John lives in Dublin and has been a drinker of Irish craft beer since the mid-1990s. He joined Irish Craft Brewer shortly after it was founded and helped steer its transformation into Beoir. He served as Beoir's treasurer from 2010 until 2016 and attended meetings of the European Beer Consumers Union on its behalf.

John has been writing a blog about beer called The Beer Nut since 2005 and has contributed to books such as the CAMRA Good Beer Guide, Irish Craft Beers: Origins, Styles & Breweries and 1001 Beers You Must Try Before You Die.
