Here’s something I never expected to be writing about – a first birthday for Craft Beer Hour! And to celebrate, we’re having a special Craft Beer Hour on Tuesday 3rd November.
Whereas we’d normally have one, or sometimes two guest hosts, for the birthday we’re inviting back everyone who has hosted the hour in 2015, and a few who are yet to come! That's currently 44 hosts including 33 breweries, 8 festivals, 2 magazines, some bloke who started #Tryanuary and the brains behind the Bus O'Clock Show.
We want as many of the people who have hosted the hour for us in the past, together with all who we're still looking forward to, to come join us for a special night on which the recommended beer list is ANYTHING inspired by a previous (or forthcoming) guest host.
So for breweries the amazing list is currently:
Innis & Gunn
Drygate – November hosts
Electric Bear – November hosts
Hawkshead – December hosts
Tempest – December hosts
Gypsy Hill – December hosts
Harbour – December hosts
Liverpool Craft Beer Co – December hosts
And if you're taking inspiration from some of our other amazing hosts, they were:
Manchester Beer & Cider Festival
The Beer O’Clock Show
Craft Beer Rising
Hop & Barley
Birmingham Beer Bash
Salford Beer Fest
Indy Man Beer Convention
Craft Beer Calling
So get here early on Tuesday 3rd November (the day before our actual birthday!) with a handful of beers from the list above and some cakes made with beer. It'll be something of a beer-fuelled free-for-all, hopefully with lots of breweries, and previous hosts on the hour together! There's a definite risk it may go into 'after hours'.
In the usual way, show us what you're drinking, and if you've got questions about your beer, ask away – hopefully the breweries will be on the hour to congratulate you on your excellent choices and answer your questions!
Thanks for supporting Craft Beer Hour, and don't forget to keep an eye on the schedule for all forthcoming guest hosts.
P.S. REMEMBER THE HASHTAG!
