#temptingtuesday – January

What the heck is #temptingtuesday I hear you say? (well, in my head you do). It’s combining my love affair with Twitter, the fun of chatting with great people and my eternal affection for beer.Β The mechanics are simple, just like its author, where on the first Tuesday of each month I ask the big wide Twitterverse a beer related question. I get inspired and blog the results.

Like an enthusiastic date with wandering hands, the new year is now upon us. Many of us have made new years resolutions centred around health – vowing to increase exercise and decreasing booze consumption (my armband smart phone case should arrive in my letter box any minute now).

But the thing about this new years resolution stuff is that you gotta make it reasonable and achievable, I reckon it’s about starting the year as you intend to finish it –Β with a damn good beer.

So it seemed fitting to ask the social media world …

What was your first beer of 2014?

Burleigh Brewing FIGJAM
