I know people rag on Facebook, but actually I have made friends I would never have met if it wasn’t for Facebook. Friends I share niche interests with, like medieval castles, unicorn onesies, Eleanor of Aquitaine, straw bale gardening, funny goat pictures, Jane Austen, and of course: BEER! I talk to Han Hidalgo about Beer Cuisine, […]
Yay, we love getting our name in the paper! Piece about the Biereloth beer festival this weekend in Boxtel, looking forward to it!
Feest feest feest – Bier feest nog wel! Artisanaal bier begint ook in Zuid-Spanje eindelijk voet aan de grond te krijgen en de organisatoren van het eerste Torremolinos Beerfest pakken dan ook flink uit: maar liefst 40 verschillende bierbrouwers vanuit heel Spanje komen hun beste brouwsels, hun meest schuimige creaties, hun koudste gouden rakkers presenteren.

Ever since we started work on the new brewery earlier this year I’ve been ogling those pristine white walls thinking that they needed something… something bold, something blue, something goaty, something ewe….

We of the Blue Goat were feeling a bit weepy and defeated this morning. All that sadness, death, destruction, hate. So we thought we’d google some cute goat pics for Easter. Somehow when the world seems extra ugly, I can take comfort in a cute goat wearing bunny ears. So. You know when you are […]
I never realised how many label collectors are out there! I get several requests a week for beer labels, and I try to keep on top of them! So If you are a collector and you want some labels, send me a pre stamped envelope addressed to yourself and I’ll get on it!
Apparently, Game of Thrones is coming to Andalucía! That would be wonderful especially if they came to my village. They totally should as it is one of the, if not THE, prettiest places on the planet. AND we have the beer…. I could brew a special beer, call it Winter’s Coming Ale. Dream of Sean […]
I love it when a plan comes together! This Día de Andalucia weekend two more lovely places have joined our quest for World Domination! In the Montes de Málaga, the famous Venta Galwey: it used to be a coaching inn, as far back as 1884. Imagine that… They have roaring fires and solid Spanish dishes […]
