Looking forward

Now that pesky Old Year is out of the way, on with the New.

My Mini Book Series is now complete. 2010 will see my exciting new project: the Mega Book Series. More details will follow, once I've thought them up. Andrew suggested the name. And waht better place to start than with a name?

More trips, more archive visits. (If I'm allowed.) I need to see more records from breweries outside London. This would mean a good excuse for a trip to Dublin. Except Guinness have already told me I can't look at their brewing logs. Bastards. The Brewing Museum in Burton is on my list. As long as I can get into the archives. As soon as the Scottish Brewing Archive is open again, I'll be back to Glasgow.

Should be a busy year.

Good man - top NY resolution. And what exactly is Guinness hiding? You're not the only bona fide researcher who has been denied access to their archive.

Ron - They have tuns and drums of deep dark secrets that they do not see the lite!

Happy New Years!!

They're clearly terrified that after a few hours photographing their brewing logs you'll explode the unmalted, roasted barley myth.

They obviously believe they have nothing whatsoever to gain from allowing access to their brewing records, and I don't think they're mistaken.
