It's deeply, deeply gratifying, but it seems that what began as a tour of readings and tastings to promote the release of Hops and Glory has become a semi-permanent, perpetual round of speaking and reading gigs. That is so not a complaint - I love doing these events - I'm just surprised.

Anyway, this is just a short post to announce some events I'm doing between now and Christmas. If I'm near you, please come along!

Tuesday 9th November (today!) - Fuller's Brewery (http://www.fullers.co.uk/), 6.30pm
bengal Lancer on draught is this month's seasonal from Fuller's. John Keeling will be giving a tutored tasting of the draught versus the bottled beer, and I'll be telling the story of IPA, which is a lot more romantic but slightly less funny than the story behind the naming of the beer.

Friday 12th November - Westmorland CAMRA Beer Lovers' Dinner, Kendal
Sold out

Saturday 13th November - Ulverston Brewery (http://www.ulverstonbrewing.co.uk/), Cumbria, 7.30pm
Exciting new Cumbrian brewery, already winning awards, Ulverston Brewing Company, The Old Auction Mart, Lightburn Road, Ulverston, Cumbria. Tickets from the brewery shop, 11am - 3pm, Mon - Sat.

Sunday 28th November - Amber Ales (http://www.amberales.co.uk/brewerytap/) Brewery Tap - The Talbot Tap, Ripley, Derbyshire
This exciting new brewery loves hops and they're having an IPA weekend, 25th-28th November, with a bunch of excellent different IPAs from around the UK and beyond. I'm talking on Sunday at 3pm. £6 ticket price includes a tasting flight of IPAs.

Sunday 5th December - Abergavenny Christmas Food and Drink Fayre (http://www.abergavennyfoodfestival.com/christmasfair/index.html)
Not really book-related, I'll be tasting Christmas beers and doing a bit of food pairing. Ticket details will be on the website soon.

Thursday 16th December - The Greystones Pub (http://www.mygreystones.co.uk/), Sheffield, 7.30pm
The latest acquisition by Thornbridge, a pub in an affluent part of Sheffield that may well be Richard Hawley's new local. I'll be tasting Thorndbridge beers and talking about the book.
