Brew Geekery : Down the Rabbit Hole – An Interview with Jacob McKean of Modern Times Beer by Peter Joseph McKerry – www.brewgeekery.com
Back to back Weekly Word Up entry for Peter! Modern Times Beer is a beer I have never tried, but thanks to this great post I feel like I want to go out and search for it. It’s an interesting interview with some honest and informative answers.
The Crafty Beeress : Beery Adventures Budapest by Charlie Cohen – www.craftybeeress.com
Working in travel has meant that I am lucky enough to occasionally go to a new destination. In my free time while away I will always try to sample some of the local publife. Budapest has always been on my “to-do list” but never got round to it. Charlie also likes to travel, and just like myself, she will make sure she visits as many places beer related as possible. Reading about Charlies latest trip away just increases my desire to visit Budapest to sample its beers and bars. Anyone who is travelling to Budapest should read her post now and check out some of the venues for yourself.
Craft Beer London : Derek Prentice – The man who’s seen the fall and rise of London brewing – www.craftbeerlondon.com
Derek Prentice is a name well known in London brewing history, his CV speaks for itself. I really enjoyed reading his insight into new brewing and it is always great to hear about the old times at Trumans. I was lucky enough to try some of the new Wimbledon Brewery beers at Borough Market recently and I really enjoyed them. I need to make a visit over to the brewery and sample the beers again soon.
She Who Dares, Travels : Fitting my life into Luggage by Fallon De Souza – www.shewhodarestravels.wordpress.com
So something slightly different to my usual blog reads… I used to work with Fallon, and even though she used to constantly eat my food, she is pretty cool. She is about to embark on a huge life changing trip and she is posting about it on her new travel blog. So I thought I would big her up a little and give her blog a friendly push. We all know how hard it is to pack for a week away somewhere* but somehow Fallon has had to pack for her much much longer travels.
