Hello again, welcome to another post about nonsense that exists. I imagine you’ve been wearing today’s glorious tat this weekend already…

Unless you have a really good pair of bosoms or a fancy moustache, making friends is quite hard to do nowadays.

This raises the problem of having nobody to drink with when you’re sat at home with your box of Beer52’s fancy craft beers. Not only is there nobody to talk to about general whatnot and such, there’s also that terrible stigma that accompanies someone sat at home in a reversible Superman/Batman dressing gown shouting “Dora is Mexico” to themselves.

Well, this is a problem that those lovely people at Beer52 have solved – an ‘interactive’ (not at all interactive) drinking buddy – The Beer Buddy.

I’ve mentioned this before and I’ll mention this again, but I’ve organised something of a gathering of people on February 24th in Leeds. It is at the Aire Bar, a lovely riverside bar with terrible disabled access and thanks to the generous people of the interwebs, we already have £300 worth of drinks paid for.

So, yeah, you’re invited and you should definitely come. I will be wearing my USB-chargable flashing shoes and some people might even wear a branded T-Shirt.

Only a short post because I suspect a lot of people are bored of me going on about it, but there you go.

For regular meetoop updates, probably daily and involving some sort of countdown to the event, follow the ‘official’ twitter account HERE. There’s an official Facebook event page too but some stupid idiot set it up as a ‘private’ page so it’s invite only. I mean, if you want to add me on Facebook and ask me to invite you it’s fine, but I do send a lot of Candy Crush requests.

If you want to help contribute to and increase the aforementioned bar fund, have a look HERE, maybe you can’t attend but want to treat your Twitter Crush to a drink in the hope that when they get home they’ll send you a rude photo. You could do that there.

Right, you’re invited, invite someone you like, then it’ll be good. Sorted.

Hi. This is me from the future. Well, kind of. I’m still writing this in your past, but relative to most of this review I am in the future, with a fairly atrocious headache and infinite regrets. 

Anyway, past me got sent a bunch of beers from beer52.com to review. I don’t like beer and this morning I like it even less. In my 36 years and 11 months on this Earth, I have drank about 2/3 of a bottle of beer (1997, cheap stuff from Morrisons), and I didn’t finish it because it was horrible. 

Yet for some reason when the review site I visit has an assignment for beer52.com’s monthly subscription craft beer club, the voices in my head decided “ooh that might be a good idea, I could do it as some sort of ‘beginner’s guide to beer’ thing”. The voices in my head are always wrong and want me to suffer.

But, they sent me the beers, and I had literally nothing better to do because Gem was watching the Apprentice final, so here you go…

All bold and italic stuff was prepared beforehand. The rest is a direct copy and paste from my review notes. I apologise in advance.
