One hundred posts!
This little blog has been bumbling along now for nearly two years (it started life on 17th June 2015). Along the way, I have been lucky enough to visit many wonderful pubs and festivals, sample several dozen beers and make a few friends. I do hope that those of you that do pop by for a quick read get something from it and I would welcome any comments/critiques on what you like, what I could do better, or what you would like to see more of.
I started this blog as an aide de memoir so I can remember (with a bit of looking up) which pubs I have visited, what beers I have sampled and more importantly, when. I have a terrible memory and so much of my life is just a big blank slate. This little piece of internet real estate at least helps me remember where I was on particular days and whether I have sampled particular beers or hostelries.
Going forwards, I have a few minor things planned for this blog to make looking things up a little easier. I am aiming to get a separate pub page (by location), an events page, and another page detailing which beers I have drunk by brewery. All of these I am hoping to put to good use by giving links to the pub, brewery and events websites where I can. This should aid anyone wishing to visit some of the places I have frequented over the years and also give a bit more detail on the ales that are available out there.
I will most likely not get round to updating all of this for a while as I am one of life's great procrastinators, but it will get done eventually; most likely in fits and starts when the inclination and energy allows me to.
Anyway, here's to the next 100 posts. Bottoms up!
