European Beer Bloggers Conference – Edinburgh #EBBC13

This time last week I was heading home from an exhaustingly hot Edinburgh and what was Day 1 of an amazing #EBBC13 conference (organised by Zephyr Adventures) Yes, just like other writers, beer bloggers get together to discuss beer-related topics, discuss writing techniques, get tips on how to improve the quality of our writing, as well as discover new breweries, and re-acquaint themselves with old faves! It was fabulous to see some old friends and make some new ones. Plus a chance to catch up with awesome peeps like Chris & Craig from Williams, Chris from Fyne Ales, Bruno from Italian craft brewery, Toccalmatto, John from Shepherd Neame and Anna & Rachel from Badger Ales. We were also in the esteemed company of world renowed beer guru, Garrett Oliver, who was our keynote speaker. He hung out with us all afternoon and well into the evening. So read more to get a run down of what happened and my link to all the fab pictures from the event.

Taking Badger Ales to #BritmumsLive 2012

Friday was pretty brilliant! Rachel Burleigh from Badger Ales and I pitched up at the first EVER Britmums Live conference to hand out FREE beer samples and wax lyrical about how cool a drink beer is! My blog tagline is ‘There is beauty in beer’ and I think everyone who came to our stand agreed!

It was extraordinary to meet some of the amazing Mum bloggers who I’ve been twitter friends with for the last year to 18months. And apart from the blogging extravaganza, I asked my fab chums from Badgers Ales to come along with me to host a beer tasting for thirsty Mums on the afternoon of the first day! Badgers Ales are a terrific brewery from Dorset who’ve been brewing in Britain since 1777!!!! I love many of the beers they make, and they even make a couple of ciders (shock, horror!! Lol!) If you’ve not heard of them yet then check them out – you can pick up some of their beers in most of the big supermarkets!
