One of my recent random ideas has been #temptingtuesday – combining my love affair with Twitter, the fun of chatting with great people and my eternal affection for beer.
The mechanics are simple, just like its author, where on the first Tuesday of each month I ask the big wide world of the Twitterverse a beer related question. I get inspired and blog the results, hopefully next time it won’t take me the whole month!
I kicked it off last month and given that I would live off beer and cheese if I wasn’t worried my heart would stop, the first topic for #temptingtuesday made sense …
You can check out the results here.
For July’s #temptingtuesday I wanted to know what beers had changed your life, the ones that totally rocked your world and made you wish the bottle or glass would instantly refill itself.
It was so good to read peoples fond memories for the beers they love so much. Thank you to everyone who contributed, I now have a hell of a shopping list.
I had the pleasure of trying to Rodenbach Grand Cru at Boatrocker Palate Cleanser for Good Beer Week. The Grand Cru is a beautiful Flanders Red Ale, a style that incorporates barrel aging, blending and special Belgian yeast strains. I found a good article on the style here if you’re keen.
Saison Dupont, Feral Hop Hog and Sierra Nevada Pale Ale are all firm favourites in my book but with all these great beers it was time to go shopping! Not for everything of course, stupid credit card limit …
So, I guess I’d better let you go, you’ve got some shopping to do!
