Back in a land of craft beer

For just over a month from mid-December I went through a bit of a craft beer drought. Firstly, I was aboard a cruise that had a single choice of beer, Mahou from Spain. This is far from craft beer. It is a pretty standard European lager. I won’t lie, they were part of...

A Craft Beer Guy at Oktoberfest

I’m travelling the world attempting to try more beers, so naturally Oktoberfest was always going to be on the agenda. What Global Beer Quest would be complete without going to the world’s most famous beer festival? With the help of a friend and Munich local we joined...

Are Hipster Baristas Stealing Craft Beer Ideas?

As I travel the world on my Global Beer Quest, I have to pay for my beers somehow. To do this I have been freelance writing articles online for beer money. Usually it’s about weird things like best vacuum cleaners, or outlet shopping. Recently though I had to write...

Am I too harsh on Untappd?

As I travel through Asia and have limited contact with craft beer, I’ll occasionally look through my checked in beers on Untappd. I do this to remember the good times, see if there is anything that I may encounter on the next leg of my trip and to see what everybody...

If you haven’t seen my previous posts I have already attempted and failed to homebrew while travelling. I didn’t let this get the better of me though. I got back to Chiang Mai a couple of weeks ago eager to try again. This time I wasn’t going to waste my time on...

My Craft Beer Honeymoon

Having just celebrated our anniversary and now Facebook bombarding me with one year ago reminders, I am reminiscing over my honeymoon. To say that it was focussed on craft beer wouldn’t be correct. However, I did marry a lady who loves a good ale as much as I do, so...

Travel Homebrew Update

I had such high hopes that I would be sharing a post about my delicious travel homebrew ginger beer, with step by step photos of the process and pride in my MacGyver-esque homebrew abilities. Unfortunately, it was not to be. It turned out to be a bit of a failure....

How I am missing homebrew. Travelling and not brewing.

Over the past few years I’ve definitely developed as a homebrewer. When I first started, like anyone does, it was with kits. I was excited to try new styles and see how they went. In most cases it was pretty good (I embraced cleaning and sanitising very early thanks...
