Random selection of beer news for you!
@HiverBeers is doing urban bee keeping and beer tasting sessions in Kennington, which is brilliant, we need more bees and pollinating insects full stop - I have taken to randomly throwing cheap packets of wild flower seeds on barren ground to do my bit, but this seems like a much more sensible solution!
Secondly, @littlevalleyale has created a range of beers to stimulate debate in the EU referendum - whilst strongly stating they are voting IN - well done guys & gals.
Also, I'm excited to announce that I'll be doing a beer & food event with @marble57Tstreet during Manchester Beer Week - we've already been working up a menu and beer pairings and it is shaping up to be a properly boozalicious afternoon with, I believe, a few unique beers you won't have seen before. Tickets available here.
It's also London Brewers Alliance hop pick tomorrow, we have two full minibuses and some AMAZING venues on the list including St John, Alyn Williams, Pitt Cue and Duck & Waffle - as well as a whole bunch of pubs like the Bohemia, the Bull at Highgate, Zerodegrees Blackheath and at taprooms like Hopstuff and Sambrook's. I'll have a full list up by this evening with any luck!
Finally, if you'd like to see the all the winners from the @brewersassoc World Beer Cup which I was judging at recently then you can find them here.
