My readers might remember that a couple of weeks ago I ran a "Brewery experience". It seemed to go quite well and everyone was pleased with the result, including me. Some of the attendees are involved in a pub and are now seriously thinking of brewing themselves.

I have subsequently had various requests about further events. One lady, who was thinking of it as a birthday treat for her beer crazy hubby, coined the phrase "Brewing workshop". I like that term so that's what I'm calling it. I wanted to keep away from calling it a course because that suggests, for a start, that it might not be fun. Additionally anything that might be akin to formal training would require a tutor who knows what he's talking about.

There are some improvements like an advanced information pack, formal introduction session and improvement in the plumbing to stop mishaps at crucial stages. Making the brewery look nicer was also suggested, unfortunately my sons bedroom ceiling is falling down and that is more important, sorry.

The events also permit general "blokes talking about beer" type activities to occur so I'm including beer in the name as well. Before I get harangued for being sexist, we have several female brewers in Cumbria and some of the most critical beer palates I know are owned by women, so there are no "Yorkie" rules here.

I think I would like to try and do three more this year. Rather than dictate the dates now I thought I'd give a list of dates that work for me. These are dates that miss bank holidays and school holidays which are busy times for me. Anyone who is seriously interested can pick dates from there and once I have 3 firm dates we'll formalise it.

So possible dates:

10&11th March too late, date scraped
