Free Beer

I'm half way through a mini-tour of UK bookshops promoting my new book "Three Sheets to the Wind: One Man's Quest for the Meaning of Beer".

The idea is we taste a few beers, and I read passages from the book that have a tenuous link with the beer in hand. Then we talk about how great the beers are. And hopefully people buy copies of the book and I try to think of something amusing to write in the front.

Future dates are:

Thurs 6th July - Borders, Oxford Street, London, 7pm. All beers kindly supplied by the Meantime Brewery, Greenwich

Saturday 8th July - Taste of Birmingham, at the Speciality Beer Academy - 2.30pm and 8.30pm. International beers supplied by www.specialityBEERmerchants.com

Thursday 20th July - Borders, Bournemouth, 7pm. Beers supplied by the Badger brewery (Hall & Woodhouse)

Wednesday 26th July - Ottakars, Salisbury, 7.30pm. Beers supplied by www.specialityBEERmerchants.com

Thursday 27th July - Ottakars, Greenwich, 7.30pm. Beers supplied by the Meantime Brewery

Come along! Taste some amazing beer!

Are they any more drinking... sorry... signing sessions planned? I've only just found out about them.

Three Sheets is one of the most wonderfully humanist books I've read. The Barnsley chapter was a highlight for me; I grew up in Chapeltown near there. And a perfect advertisement for beer culture.

There will be a couple more events in the Autumn, probably in the north of England. But if you think your local bookshop would be interested, get them to get in touch!
