Dates for your diaries!

Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut!

Ernest Hemingway.

Wise words from Hemingway. How many times have you said something when you've been stupidly pissed and woken up feeling like a complete idiot?
I have been guilty of this many many times and nowadays it's usually work based and a massive idea that gets shot down in flames, quite rightly sometimes, and sometimes it's a massive idea that is cool, fun, innovative and make's work a lot more fun than it really should be!
I've had several of these ideas recently and one in particular has started forming very quickly and very excitingly!
I'm going to let the cat out of the bag slightly and say we are planning four beer festivals(at least) in the next 12 months and the fourth will be a celebration of our 5th birthday and it's going to be HUGE!
You basically need to save the following dates in your diary....

October 31st - November 6th 2010 - South West Beer Fest.
February 27th - March 5th 2011 - 3rd annual Welsh Beer Festival
May 28th - May 30th 2011 - Summer Ales Festival
The fourth festival has two provisional dates that I'm looking at : 
DATE ONE : July 24th - July 28th 2011 OR
DATE TWO : August 7th - August 10th 2011

So those are the dates, no excuses for not being there and I can tell you one thing for sure, it's going to be fun, there I go running my mouth again!

I do hope you'll be getting some
Hop Back Brewery stuff in for your South-West beer festival.
Apart from the usual suspects such as Crop Circle and Summer Lightning I specifically recommend the GFB which is the session beer and mighty drinkable it is too.
Let me know and I'll book a flight.
