The Book Tour That Wouldn't Die

It's deeply, deeply gratifying, but it seems that what began as a tour of readings and tastings to promote the release of Hops and Glory has become a semi-permanent, perpetual round of speaking and reading gigs.  That is so not a complaint - I love doing these events - I'm just surprised.

Anyway, this is just a short post to announce some events I'm doing between now and Christmas.  If I'm near you, please come along!

Tuesday 9th November (today!) - Fuller's Brewery, 6.30pm
bengal Lancer on draught is this month's seasonal from Fuller's.  John Keeling will be giving a tutored tasting of the draught versus the bottled beer, and I'll be telling the story of IPA, which is a lot more romantic but slightly less funny than the story behind the naming of the beer.

Friday 12th November - Westmorland CAMRA Beer Lovers' Dinner, Kendal
Sold out

Saturday 13th November - Ulverston Brewery, Cumbria, 7.30pm
Exciting new Cumbrian brewery, already winning awards, Ulverston Brewing Company, The Old Auction Mart, Lightburn Road, Ulverston, Cumbria. Tickets from the brewery shop, 11am - 3pm, Mon - Sat.

Sunday 28th November - Amber Ales Brewery Tap - The Talbot Tap, Ripley, Derbyshire
This exciting new brewery loves hops and they're having an IPA weekend, 25th-28th November, with a bunch of excellent different IPAs from around the UK and beyond.  I'm talking on Sunday at 3pm.  £6 ticket price includes a tasting flight of IPAs.

Sunday 5th December - Abergavenny Christmas Food and Drink Fayre
Not really book-related, I'll be tasting Christmas beers and doing a bit of food pairing.  Ticket details will be on the website soon.

Thursday 16th December - The Greystones Pub, Sheffield, 7.30pm
The latest acquisition by Thornbridge, a pub in an affluent part of Sheffield that may well be Richard Hawley's new local.  I'll be tasting Thorndbridge beers and talking about the book.

See you there!

Hi Pete. Thinking of popping by for the Fullers leg of your tour. Do tickets need to be bought/requested? Looked on Fullers site and there was no mention.
