Hi , and thanks for visiting The Good Stuff. The Good Stuff is Leeds’s longest-running Beer Blog, and exists solely to let you, the reader, know a little more about what is – and where to find – Good Beer. You can also get recipes for Good Food to eat with that great beer, and give the Good People who brew and sell fantastic beers independently a place to speak.
I’m Leigh Linley; born and bred in Leeds, and I’ve writing about beer and food since 2007. I’m also the author of Great Yorkshire Beer – jump over to the Great Yorkshire Beer page to read more about that. I’ve also contributed to Culture Vulture, Food & Drink Digital, Food&, Beer Magazine and Leeds Guide.
Great Yorkshire Beer won Silver in the Adnams Award for Regional Media in the 2013 British Guild of Beer Writers Awards.
I also contributed to Future Publishing’s Craft Beer: 100 Best Breweries in the World.
The Good Stuff was a shortlisted blog in the Food & Drink Category for the 2013 Blog North Awards. Great Yorkshire Beer took silver place in the Adnams Award for Best Writing in Regional Media in 2013.

*PR Companies/Guest Post Guidelines*
In line with the above, please be aware that I do not accept guest posts from third parties and will not in the future. Also note the subject of the blog – I’m not interested in Cereal, Tea Bags or Toasters!
If you are a PR representative working for an independent brewer who wants to alert me to events, new beers or news that my readership would find interesting, then by all means contact me. If you want to send me beer for review, please note that any beers featured on The Good Stuff will be reviewed fairly and honestly, and for this reason I cannot guarantee inclusion.
