Two years


Not two years since the last blog post, although that’s not far off. I won’t apologise for that – there’s just not enough to say about making beer so you would need to keep a blog going with opinions and who can be bothered with opinions?

No, it’s two years since I packed in the day job to devote myself (part-time, very) to making beer. More specifically, it’s two years since I first set up my wee stall at Woodlea Stables on Saturday 1 July 2017, still hungover from my work leaving do on the Thursday and a wee night in the village on the Friday.

The first anniversary slipped by unnoticed but I thought this time I’d mark the occasion by giving a wee present to the folk who’ve made it possible – the people who’ve bought the beer. So, if you’re at Woodlea over the next few weeks* (from 29 June) and buying beer, please have a free* t-shirt.*
