I was surprised to note that four of the most popular were published this year, inlcuding the second most popular of all time. Even weirder, numbers 9 and 10 were posted on the same day in October this year.

This is probably as retrospective as I'll be getting as the end of the year approaches. Most my head is already in next year, planning various trips and wondering about which books I should publish. I'm already assembling a list in my head for the latter.
I've several partially complete manuscripts. Which to finish off first? Victory! Vol. II is on the cards. But that could change. I'm also planning new, expanded editions of some existing books.
At the beginning of March the Historic Lager Festival will finally go ahead. I've been trying to get this off the ground for a couple of years.
Lots of collaboration brews planned. And a new dream: getting a range of Warwicks beers on the bar of a former warwicks pub. How difficult could that be? After all, I did get Watney's Red Barrel brewed this year. (And very nice it was, too.)
There's so much to look forward to. Why look back?
