Nice catching up with you at the recent Beer & Brewer Expo in Melbourne (I'm the card-carrying CAMRA member & Doncaster Rovers supporting Yorkshireman you had a chat to).
The tastings were excellent, and your knowledge of beer unparalelled. You were right about Avram Grant - let's hope the mighty Hammers do better under him.
Thanks for signing my book as well - you are a real gent!
Cheers and happy beer-travels,
