An Update

This blog has been quiet for a while, but not for lack of beer in my life.  Perhaps there is too much good beer in York– it is everywhere, making blogging about it a bit overwhelming.  Just yesterday I walked to my optometrist and smelled that boggy bakery smell of a working brewery– York Brewery was no doubt cooking up some Centurion’s Ghost or Yorkshire Terrier.

I look forward to the opening of the York Tap this month– a stone’s throw from my house.

York has been good to me.  The local branch of CAMRA invited me to be a judge in the beer fest this year, and I have gone on many happy pub crawls in this beautiful city I now call home.

In other news, one of my short stories has been published in the current issue of Witness, in case you are curious. It is a fictional account of the Dyatlov Pass Incident.  You can read it online here: http://witness.blackmountaininstitute.org/author/allysonshaw/

In the meantime, while I consider ways to talk about the quiet delight of beer in York, I thank you for stopping by this sleepy blog.

  1. Welcome back – I thought you’d perhaps become a Carlsberg drinker and were hiding away in shame.

    • Haha– Neville– never! I think perhaps I am overwhelmed with all the amazing beer up North. It is really beer heaven up here. It almost seems redundant to write about it! Perhaps I will be able to pick up this blogging lark again.

  2. York Tap!

    • Come visit when it opens! Maybe we can brew something!

  3. This is easily one of the best beer blogs I’ve read. Engaging, superbly written and full of personality. Would love to see it back, if only on an infrequent basis, but I know how these things go!

    • Hi Sam, thank you so much for the kind words. I would like to get my beer-writing mojo back, too. Encouraging comments help!
