Dustoff the fancy bottles, it’s time to Open It!

It’sa reason and an excuse to open those bottles you’ve been saving. The bottleswhich you really want to drink but also really want to hold onto until aspecial occasion. The thing is, not all beer gets better if you leave it andthe worst beer-thing ever is opening that bottle which you thought would beincredible only to realise that it’s now dead. Don’t let that happen. Don’tsave it for that unknown special occasion; make this that special occasion.

Doit alone, do it with friends, do it in the pub, whatever, just open that bottle(beer, wine, whisky, hot sauce, it doesn’t matter what!) you’ve been saving andenjoy it and share it with others online using the #openit hashtag.

Ifyou are in Leeds or fancy a day out, then Rick Furzer and some of the greatbeer venues up there are planning some cool Open It! events with beer and foodand then more beer.

Let’shijack the weekend of 24-26 February. A three-day excuse to drink the beststuff you’ve got. Go on, just Open It!

OpenIt! is something that Andy Mogg from Beer Reviews and I have run a few timesnow. Anyone and everyone can get involved and it can be any bottle you like.What bottle have you got in mind...?
