Has the panic set in? With Christmas on a Monday, December seems extra short. What's that got to do with #Beer news? Not much. But it's Thursday so here you go... https://abetterbeerblog427.com/2023/12/07/as-madcap-slide-into-yuletide-speeds-up-heres-this-weeks-beery-news/ #BeerWriting

60 year old Alan is very pleased that 53 year old Alan organized all his NY history ads and articles from 1740s to the 1840s in folders decade by decade on Google Drive. And a folder for large format map images, too. And file names include jounal then date then subject. Folders shared, chore done. #BeerWriting #History #Beer

Down the pub with Andrew.
It was one of those weeks. A few exciting then glum then cheery then just a bit weird tidbits in the beery news notes this week. Here’s your recommended reading dubbed “The Uncertainty Abounds As Yuletide Looms Edition Of The Beery News Notes”: http://abetterbeerblog427.com/2023/11/30/the-uncertainty-abounds-as-yuletide-looms-edition-of-the-beery-news-notes/… #Beer #BeerWriting
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! In my latest print article, which came out before the holiday, I revisited an article I wrote seven years ago on #beer and food pairings for the holiday.
My Christmas book is now out:
I wrote a thing that is not about local pubs for local people (as such), but is about cask ale...
It’s that oddest of weeks for us up here in the northern half of North America. News and ads and celebrations and stuff we up here for a holiday don’t quite understand. I mean we’d be definitely welcomed if we showed up - handed that bowl of stuffing for sure - but shouldn’t a harvest fest be at harvest time? Anyway, here’s your weekly reading recommendations: “The Beery News Notes For That Week The USA Does All That Weird Thanksgiving Stuff“ http://abetterbeerblog427.com/2023/11/23/the-beery-news-notes-for-that-week-the-usa-does-all-that-weird-thanksgiving-stuff/ #Beer #BeerWriting

An encounter with old beer.

Me and Dolores go to Düsseldorf. Much merriment ensues.
A mid-19th-century London Stout recipe - 1855 Truman X Export Stout.

It’s Tuesday evening and I’m only getting around to reading Stan’s weekly round up of beer writing. That’s some serious side effect from changing the clocks. Good stuff this week. @StanHieronymus #Beer #BeerWriting https://appellationbeer.com/blog/monday-a-m-beer-links-morality-be-dd/
A horrible truth about beer in the 1970s.
Let’s rip off that big bandaid fast! Your inordinate interest in good beer - cool or weird? And which is it better to be?

It’s that time of year - Jack O’Lanterns, trick or treaters, ghoulish inflatable lawn ornaments with sounds of innocents screaming (which is a bit much) so, in that spirit, here’s your weekly reading recommendations: “The Woooooooooo Scariest Hellbound Beery News Notes Ever Unleashed From The Bowels Of Hell!!!” http://abetterbeerblog427.com/2023/10/26/the-woooooooooo-scariest-hellbound-beery-news-notes-ever-unleashed-from-the-bowels-of-hell/ #Beer #BeerWriting

Check out Stan’s Monday beer links. Good thoughtful reading - and even some overthinking. Not all good news but the good news is that it is also not all bad news. @StanHieronymus https://appellationbeer.com/blog/because-monday-beer-links-always-include-overthinking/ #beer #BeerWriting
A pre-war strong Burton Ale recipe - 1937 Barclay Perkins KK (bottling).

A quieter week in #BeerWriting this week... but that's only because no one did anything too dumb... like knocking down a historic pub, sell off all their craft brands or, you know, break the law. Have a look: http://abetterbeerblog427.com/2023/08/17/the-mere-days-before-vacation-edition-of-the-beery-news-notes/ #beer

My latest article for the local paper, out this week to wrap up June, talks about common #wheat #beer styles and local breweries who create them. For the article I picked up a growler of Heffen N’ Peffen Hefe from #KoboldBrewing, brewed in the German style.
