Come and drink some beer and buy my books!

Doing a few events this summer to promote the beer trilogy and generally have a nice time drinking beer and talking about my books. You should come along.

This Sunday, 20th June, I'm at the Cheltenham Food and Drink Festival, ostensibly talking around the theme 'In Search of the World's Best Beers. I'll have beers including Otley O-Garden (last week voted Champion Beer of Wales), Harviestoun Ola Dubh and Goose Island IPA, and I'll be reading passages from or talking about all three books. Talk starts at 1.30pm on Sunday, and if you fancy making a weekend of it you can listen to Ben McFarland talking about the world's best beers on Saturday, and after me on Sunday afternoon Adrian Tierney-Jones talking about Cotswold beers to try before you die.

I'm spending next weekend in Brighton and surrounding areas, courtesy of the fine people at Dark Star. At 4pm on Saturday 26th we'll be converging on the Duke of Wellington pub on Brighton Road in Shoreham for a talk about Hops and Glory and IPA.  What better excuse to tuck into a dazzling array of IPAs, both 'genuine' and 'modern'?

There will be more events to be announced.  Another one already confirmed for later in the summer, I'm incredibly proud to have been asked to do the Edinburgh International Book Festival.  I'll be there on Tuesday 24th August at 8.30pm.

Books beer and - hopefully - balmy sunshine.  Can life be any better?

Hoping to make it to Shoreham-by-sea on Saturday. Will you have the new copies of MWIAP and TSTTW available for purchase? I've been looking for them in book shops but they only have the old-style cover.

I'll try and make that - it's only a few miles from Steyning and the Duke of Wellington is a nice pub.

Was at Cheltenham on Sunday and loved the talk. Esp liked the Goose Island IPA (which I still maintain tastes like hot cross buns lol) So just wanted to say thanks and it was a great chance to pick up a signed copy of you latest book. :)

Pete, when's the San Francisco appearance? We'd love to see you out here. What with the news at Anchor and a few worthy IPAs of our own - would seem like a natural.
