For those lazy weekend mornings when you just want to stay in bed and catch up on a little reading – Weekend Reading is a weekly post with the articles I’ve enjoyed in the past seven days and hope that you will too.
The author, like me, is not 100% convinced about the whole beer and glassware thing. Our house is small so we keep things to a minimum on the glassware front – beer goes into either a pint glass, seamless wine or tulip. However I still enjoy reading these sort of articles, I am very open to being convinced of keeping proper glassware in the house. I just need a bigger kitchen first.

Brewers Association | What’s the next IPA?
The impact that Pale Ales and IPAs have had on craft beer is unmistakable but will there be another style that has as much impact and if so, what is that style?

Five beers in five days of those “I’ll drink them one day” beers. Enjoy the ride!
