When will Hops and Glory be available in the US?

I bought my copy from bookdepository.com. Free worldwide shipping and had it in a few days.

"9th/10th October - Greater Manchester Real Ale Festival"

Actually the Manchester Food and Drink Festival. I'll see you there. I'm looking after the beer and doing a bit of judging in the Greater Manchester Beer of the Year - or whatever we call it. I think you might be invited to judge too!

I'll be at the Green Man festival on Friday so will hopefully see you there.

Thanks Chris for the bookdepository.com tip - just ordered my copy!

I got a copy in Steyning (about a week after your signing) and REALLY enjoyed it. Despite the collaboration with the unspeakable Coors - you should have got Dark Star to brew it. I'm sure Rob would have carted a barrel up to Burton for you :)
Anyway, I'm recommending it to people all over the place.

Cheers Attila

Cheers Attila! I remember you playing out un ion when i was at uni in the late 80s. this is indeed an honour. And the Steyning gig was one of the best I've done all summer.

I'm a massive fan of Dark Star and was talking to Mark just yesterday at Thornbridge. And have been speaking to Paul about doing something next spring down at the brewery. Hope to see you there!

As for Coors... well, there's probably a heated political debate to be had about the difference between views on large corporations versus sound and wonderful people who work inside them.

Cheers!

Nigel - sorry I couldn't speak longer at Green Man. Thanks for coming along to the reading!

Tandleman - I am judging in Manchester - look forward to seeing you there

In this case, Pete, it's not just their right wing politics, it's the fact that they (like their competitors) brew the urine of Satan! I do take the bit about good people in large corporations - but small independents RULE! Or rather, they don't, but should. And the biggies don't need anyone's help, even if they do occasionally make a good beer
(or one good batch of something that normally tastes like the water our goldfish lives in, in the case of a certain award winning 'IPA'.....

Oh - and why don't you come and talk at our Glastonwick festival next year? It's run by me, Alex 'Independent Imbiber' Hall (now living in NYC and organising all kinds of stuff there) and Dark Star..

Thanks Atilla - would love to come to Glastonwick!
