With Record Store Day upon us let’s take a moment to reflect on beer and music. The two have long enjoyed a relationship of mutual love and respect. It’s celebrated every year at events large and small from Inverness, through Cumbria’s Silloth, past Conwy in Wales, down to Hastings, East Sussex.
Following on from our Christmas gift guide for beer lovers we bring you our recommendations for essential beer books. From the basics to super-beer-geek, within the pages of the books listed here the secrets and wonder of the world’s most popular alcoholic drink are revealed and explained.
Last night was our very first Beer Club. Acclaimed writer Pete Brown took over the Beer For That Twitter account between 7pm and 8pm and we asked you to have your burning pale ale questions at the ready. You totally delivered. We received hundreds of tweets from around the globe enabling Pete to offer his expertise on pale ale history, food matches, characteristics, alternatives and much, much more.
