So Saturday the sun was a-shining, the beer was a-flowing and the music was a-playing. The conditions were pretty good for the Spitting Feathers BrewBarn day at the brewery, and they certainly rose to the occasion. And how!     What’s a “BrewBarn” then, I hear you ask. Well, here’s how it works: the day starts at 2.00pm sharp and finishes around 6.00pm.…

About beer and why more women should drink it

11 Comments

   “Hi, my name is Kat, and I like beer.”   No, I’m not a member of the AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) or even of the AB (Anonymous Beerlovers), this is how I usually introduce myself when I meet new people. Why? Not because I think beer drinkers are an identifiable group like Lambrini Girls, but because beer is what I…

Christmas Beer Tasting

  Ho ho ho y’all! If there’s anything screams “Noel” more than Christmas beer, mince pies, piggies in blankets and cheese I don’t really want to know about it. Needless to say the Christmas beer tasting session I hosted in Chester Beer and Wine yesterday ticked all of my festive boxes.   It was all “ho, ho, ho” and not…

  Chester really spoils us with great beer. We’ve got more pubs and bars per capita than many larger cities and boy, are they filled with some top tipple.   And if quality and quantity weren’t enough to rock your boat in the harbour of awesome ales, then prepare to clutch your pearls when I tell you than these esteemed…
