If you have been following this thread in the forum you will know that I have made a submission to the Alcohol Advisory Group on behalf of the members of this website.
Thanks to TheBeerNut for the idea and taking everyone's opinions, expressed over a six page long thread and melding them into a coherent whole.
The group will be making their recommendations to the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform by the 31st of March 2008.
The document was submitted via email earlier today. Download the full text here.
The management at the Bull and Castle have kindly offered to let ICB members to bring their own beers in to the Beer Hall for a tasting evening on Thursday the 19th of July. This is only the second time ICB members will have the oppertunity to get together to try each others beers, and being in the Beer Hall we will also be able to compare to commercial examples of the chosen styles for the evening; American IPAs and Wheat Beers.
To register your interest in attending, and to let us know what, if any, beers you are bringing, please see the thread in the Events forum. If you don't have beers of the chosen styles, or are a non-brewing member, don't worry! Pop along to have a taste and meet other members of the community.
We intend starting around 7pm. Looking forward to an evening of fine beer and chat.
See you there!
