Jeff Evans, over at Inside Beer (http://www.insidebeer.com/), is hosting a beer Twasting on Thursday 25th February. A beer tasting/twitter mash-up where everyone is invited to drink a couple of bottles of beer and tweet their thoughts on them, while seeing Jeff’s own thoughts. This is something I’ve been thinking about for a while so I’ll be playing along on Thursday. Just buy the beers, sit down at 7.00pm GMT, open them and tweet about them, directing them to @insidebeer (http://twitter.com/insidebeer) and/or using the #ibtwasting hashtag. The two beers are Wychwood’s Hobgoblin (http://www.wychwood.co.uk/beers.htm#) and Brakspear Triple (http://www.brakspear-beers.co.uk/brakspear2006_packaged.htm#triple), so bottles which should be easy for everyone to find. Check out Jeff’s post on his website about the event for more details. (http://www.insidebeer.com/articles/20100203_1)

Interestingly, Ales by Mail attempted a Virtual Beer Festival (http://www.alesbymail.com/virtual_beer_fest.html) on Saturday which I think was a great idea too – a box of beers, opened and enjoyed while discussing it on the internet; similar to a ‘real’ beer festival, just at home. I like it and I like the online interactivity of it all.
