About Patrick O'Neill

Patrick O'Neill is the author of three previous edition of Cellarmanship, all published by CAMRA. He studied physics and sent more than 30 years working as an engineer in the electronics industry. His science and engineering experience proved useful in running CAMRA beer festivals and for several decades the bar and cellar of a busy Private Members Club, and this book was produced as a result of that experience. The technical aspects of making, keeping and selling beer have always been of consuming interest to him.
