Meet Aberdeen City & Shire Blogger Greg Christie from Greg Who Drinks Beer
Next up in our new blog series, Meet the Aberdeen City & Aberdeen Shire Blogger/Vlogger is xxxx
Tell us a little about you and your blog/channel:
My blog became a natural evolution of my Instagram – for months I was posting pictures along with my thoughts on the world of beer on Instagram. After a while I felt the time was right to take it to the next level, and started my blog. After a year and a half of blogging about just beer, I felt that I had more to say, and my blog evolved into what it is today (beers, burgers & everything else). So from then on I started sharing my thoughts on food, movies, running & just about anything else I’m interested in.
