It’s been such a long time since I posted anything on the blog I’m surprised I can remember how to use WordPress. These last few months have been particularly busy for me. I was studying for the Advanced Cicerone exam, which I took in early November (passed the written portion, still have to take the tasting…) and plan to blog about in the New Year, and working on the summer issue of On Tap Magazine as well as a large travel writing project (hoorah for the notion that travel writing is a thing again!) so the blog has been rather neglected.
But I’m never too busy for the annual Brewmistress South African Beer Awards – the only, to my knowledge, people’s choice awards for the South African beer scene. Format is the same as every other year – please head over to the form and fill it in! I always disqualify people that enter the same thing for every single category (e.g. brewery XYZ for best brewery, best beer, best liquor store etc.) This is a time to say thank you to all those people that make lockdowns and school holidays and weekends just that little bit better, so grab yourself a beer (it’s Christmas so it doesn’t matter what time of day it is) and show some love to all your beery favourites.
Winners will be announced on
Christmas Eve Monday December 27.
