Boak & Bailey's Beer Blog - Writing about beer and pubs since 2007 (http://boakandbailey.com)
Don’t have much time. Must go out in sun before storm comes.*Links below!→ Lynn Pearson on churches with links to beer, for English Heritage (http://heritagecalling.com/2014/07/30/10-great-places-where-beer-meets-the-church/). The first picture, of a stained glass window, is especially wonderful. (Via Tim Holt (http://twitter.com/beerhasahistory).)
→ Tandleman had a chance encounter with the head brewer at Paulaner’s ‘craft’ offshoot in Munich (http://tandlemanbeerblog.blogspot.co.uk/2014/08/ice-cold-in-munich.html): ‘“We could maybe taste some of the products?”*he suggested.’
→ The ever-provocative ‘Hardknott’ Dave Bailey has concluded that*‘handpulls suck’ as a method of serving beer (http://hardknott.blogspot.co.uk/2014/08/the-faux-handpull.html).
→ Saved to Pocket (http://forums.pubsgalore.co.uk/getpocket.com) for reading later: a long piece (5000 words) by Phil on the benefits, or not, of abstinence from alcohol (http://ohgoodale.wordpress.com/2014/08/04/stay-dry/).
→ Also saved to Pocket, this 1940 portrait of the legendary ale house McSorley’s (http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/1940/04/13/the-old-house-at-home)*from the*New Yorker archive. (Via*someone called BB, via*Jeff Alworth, who adds*commentary (http://beervana.blogspot.co.uk/2014/08/mcsorleys-1940.html).)
Blogging about blogging→ Session #91 has been announced by the hosts, Belgian Smaak (http://belgiansmaak.com/announcement-session-91/). The pleasingly*wide-open topic is ‘Your first Belgian’.
→ Chris Hall has reminded us all about his Golden Posts project (http://thebeerdiary.wordpress.com/2014/08/06/update-golden-posts-2014/):
Each tired sigh from the crypt of “is beer blogging dead?” (accompanied by the rattling of chains, creaking of doors and so on) suggests to me a suffocating, numbing ignorance of just how many great beer blogs are out there, so I hope The Golden Posts could help people find new, great blogs.
→ And speaking of mass-blogging circle-jerking love-ins, don’t forget that we’re*‘going long’ on 30 August (http://boakandbailey.com/2014/04/going-long-in-august-2014/) — we’d love you to join in!
