Why do trumpets taste like hops?
Five years ago I read an article about a study at Heriot Watt university that had found different styles of music could 'improve' the flavour of wine. In a controlled experiment, wines paired with the 'right' style of music tasted 40-60% better than those p...

Barcelona II: This Time it's Sidra
Food of Los Dioses Around the corner from La Cerveteca in Barcelona's Bari Gotic I stumble (literally) upon La Socarenna, a small bar built into an arch, offering productes asturias y catalans . They make cider in Asturias, and sure enough, the front window...

Guinness back to what it does best
It really is good for you. Ah, St Patrick's Day: guaranteed to drive some angsty beer geeks to ask why everyone insists on drinking Guinness when there are so many superior stouts available, and explain to their friends that it's not really an Irish beer at...

Man V #BrewBurger
Burger condiments The idea, apparently, was "to get as much beer in a burger as we possibly could." "Ah, well, I like to chuck a bottle of beer into my burger mix," I smile. Tom from Honest Burger looks at me oddly. "No, we don't actually put it in the burg...

Craft Beer Rising
The thing I heard said by people most often at yesterday's trade session for the above event: "This is so much better than last year." It was better organised. The stands were better. The space was used more effectively. And most interestingly: "Last year i...

'Imperial'
In February I was in Chicago for the US Cider Conference . It was massively exciting, because craft cider in America is where craft beer was twenty years ago. It's impossible not to draw some parallels between the two drinks.  Because of the way the two sce...

Barcelona discovers craft beer: becomes even more perfect
I can't believe it's a decade since my first visit to Barcelona, as part of the research for my second book, Three Sheets to the Wind .  Back then any new city outside the UK mainland was a bewildering adventure for me. Anything that was marginally differen...

Will 'craft' change beer for good?
Guys from Five Points took this at the previous, shorter Masterclass. There's something deeply wrong when you have to set the alarm on a Sunday morning and be out of the door by half past eight.  But you wouldn't do it if it wasn't also the sign of somethin...

What will be interesting is which aspects of it stay and become mainstream. But surely there are so many breweries now it's only a matter of time before the siba classifieds are full of cheap 5bbl kits.

Brewers Dominate BBC Radio 4 Food and Farming Awards
I wrote a few years ago that Thornbridge and BrewDog were like the Beatles and the Stones : rivals, both revolutionary, one more user friendly and respectable, the other edgier and more dangerous, but each profoundly changing the medium they work in. Now, I...

Six ways to spot if anti-drink stories are trying to mislead you
Our old friends, the media's favourite 'binge drinking' shots. One of these is staged by an actor. The other two show what might well be moderate alcohol consumption. I do get bored of writing pieces that take down the regular tide of increasingly dishonest...
