Krispy’s Guide to the Pboro Beer Festival

Krispy’s Guide to the Pboro Beer Festival

Updated for 2015:  I thought I’d write a bit of a fun guide to what it’s like to spend time at the Peterborough beer festival, either for those of you who are coming for the first time, or for those of you who may give an experienced nod to some of the points I make, or maybe even write to me in a fit of anger at my schoolboy errors! The first thing I often do the day or two before the festival, is read through the beer list, and...

Me on The Radio Helping to Promote Pboro BeerFest

Thanks to Karl, AKA the Peterborough CAMRA PR and social media guru, I was invited along to a one our radio show on the local community radio station Peterborough FM.  The theme was Health and Gadgets (related to beer, obviously!).   So not just my mobile app, but also the use of other apps (like UNTAPPD.com), and social media.

The set-up is done, the beers are all on their racking waiting for us punters to arrive. Unusually this year my good wife Nicola is coming along with me to the trade session – she’s not a beer drinker really, but thought she’d...

Mobile App (and me) Mentioned in Local Press Preview

Mobile App (and me) Mentioned in Local Press Preview

The local Peterborough Telegraph have once again given the Peterborough Beer Festival, my Mobile App, and my good self a plug in this week’s issue. The preview (web version here) was written by John Baker, a local journalist and funny bloke I sat with at last year’s official judging session.  We are both probably not 100% qualified for the job, but we gave it our best, and had a laugh doing so.  Technically it was work for John, and...
