About the Author

Olle Andersson Vidén. Born and currently living in the woods of Sweden. This spring of 2014 I will finish my Bachelor degree in Sommelier – Culinary Arts and Meal Science, at the University of Grythyttan. I have always been interested of how our senses work and how we perceive the things we drink and I remember the first time I really understood the wonders and diversity of beer. I was a 15 year old punk, drinking whatever I could get my hand on, but one weekend my uncle decided to shop for me at the Swedish alcohol monopoly, Systembolaget that have an age-limit of 20 years. I remember he bought me a Celebration Ale from Sierra Nevada and my world turned completely around and was the start of my love for beer and the diversity it possesses. Since then my preferences has steered to the sour part of beer and over the past 5 years my acidity addiction has grown stronger and stronger. With the background of being a Sommelier my main focus will be towards sensory and the element behind how we perceive beer. It could be purely physically or socially. My job is to paint a nuanced picture of how we as humans work towards beer and its sensory attributes. Except my interest in the enjoyments of drinking and eating, I love music which is right now mostly focused on Garage rock, Goth surf and other stoner-influenced sounds.
