Merry Christmas!

Just a short Christmas message, posted by timer as I neck beer in Spain with my gal and her family. Technology, son.

This year has been fucking huge. It started out with me working like crazy on Craft Beer: the 100 Best Breweries in the World and is ending now with me and most of the guys I worked with putting together another project in the same vein.

In between all this I kept up an admittedly and embarassingly slow trickle of work for RGCD, where I write about video games, put in a contribution to The Carouser (a London-based booze and tunes mag) and guested over on Bum Wine Bob’s blog, which was a lot of fun.

I also tried my best to keep up a decent pace on the beer blogging side of things, and I would like to thank all of you for reading my articles.

I really mean it. You’re all ace.

Looking Forward, Forwarder, and Back a Bit

It's been a month since I last blogged on here. It feels like longer, because I've been doing so much journalism-related stuff that actually blogging seems to have fallen by the wayside. Fear not, this page won't end up a ghost town populated only by automated comments about cheap Cialis for a good while yet.

I've been doing things! I promise.

I'm not sure how much of this I can talk about yet, so I'll keep it vague. I'm joining Chris Hall, Craig Heap and Matt Curtis (most of the team I worked with on Craft Beer: the 100 Best Breweries in the World) on a big project that is taking me to Sheffield tomorrow (well, technically today, but we're in the awkward small-hours) and other places in the UK later on, and drinking and writing are going to feature heavily on this and subsequent missions.

I'm really excited to have the band back together.

I can talk in greater detail about a plan of my own which is going to come to fruition in the New Year so I totally will.
