Look, I’m sure most of you have read Hops and Glory by now if you are ever going to, and I know I’ve blogged obsessively about it, but if you have read it you’ll understand why.
Anyway, after a bit of a break I’m now into my final bunch of events, and we may well have been saving the best till last.
Tonight in Nottingham I’m doing a reading as part of the first Nottingham Food and Drink Festival. We’re at the Tamatanga Indian restaurant from 6-7pm. As well as going on about the book we’ll be tasting three different IPAs and matching them with Indian food.
Over the weekend I’m at the Abergavenny food festival. On Saturday I’m talking about the Microbrewers of Wales – and that sold out weeks ago! On Sunday I’m doing ‘The Glory of IPA’ and I think there may be a few tickets left for that.
A few remaining gigs still on the list to the right, but one I’ve been very tardy in posting is an event at the Henley Literary Festival in association with Lovibonds brewery. As well as reading from the book we’ll be trying a big old hop monster that Lovibonds brewer Jeff has brewed specially for the occasion.
I also missed off the Nantwich Food and Drink Festival – two gigs on Friday 25th and Saturday 26th, preceded by a Worthington White Shield dinner in Manchester on Thursday 24th.
Beer and books. I find them a winning combination!
