>The Session: New Beers Resolutions
What beer mistakes did you make?
I planned to do a round up of Supermarket beers during the summer, but with the exception of one or two, they were all so supremely bad that I couldn’t bring myself to post about them.
Also, I became too freindly with some Fuller’s London Porter in exceelent condition in York earlier on in the year, and almost missed my train home – which was important as I had a birthday meal to attend. I made it (just), but was so drunk that I could not enjoy the lovely Thai feastthat had been laid on. A shame – and I was well and truly in the doghouse that night.
What beer resolutions do you have for 2010?
One – to drink more in Pubs. Simple as that, to simply drink in pubs more. Not much of a hardship, is it?Also to provide more coverage on the blog for beer festivals and more small brewer interviews. That’s what’s important – not how many free lunches I’ve attended.
Beer regrets? Well, simply not doing more! There’s always beer festivals, events and launches that I can’t attend due to short notice or location. Working full-time can really be a bind on your beery adventuring. Embarrasing moments? Not any that I can recall! No regrets!
What are you hoping to change about your beer experience in 2010?
I have a gap in my knowledge when it comes to Italian Craft Beer, and as I’m visiting the North of Italy in September, I’m hoping to find some time out of my honeymoon to try some great beers. I’m incredibly lucky to have a partner who is very open to beer and my passions and is happy to indulge me!! I’m also going to try and see if I can avoid temptation to do the inevitable ‘World Cup of Beer’ posts in the summer. Really. It’s been done. Really Done.
