Already we are only into the new year a few days and a couple of excellent posts are around, from Ghostie talking about his aims, Boak and Bailey's 'What wedge?' post, Leigh talking sense, and Tandlemans cracking post here.
Go read and enjoy, or not, whatever your opinions are.
For this year myself I had already been thinking about the blog and how it would progress.
A quick scan of the beer reviews I did last year showed about only 20% were Welsh beers.
I had noted this a couple of months ago and tried to address this, featuring beers by Newmans, Purple Moose, Jacobi and Wye Valley.
So to this end I am going to focus more on Welsh beers this year on the blog.
I will still drink and review all other beers that take my fancy, but you can find many reviews on other blogs for the likes of Thornbridge, Magic Rock, Kernel et al, so I aim to bring Welsh beers you may not be aware of to a little wider attention.
I'm just an English beer drinking fella living in Wales and shall attempt to share what I find out.
(Regular brewery news, announcements and pub information is already brilliantly served by Brew Wales so I wont be going there.)
I've already got several bottles lined up, from the likes of Pen-lon, Celt Experience, Neath Ales,and more from the Purple Moose and Vale of Glamorgan breweries.
(....but the beer geek side is still there and I have still to open that Mikkeller Breakfast bottle!!!).
