Who Said We're Invisible??

I don't know who said it, but I can remember someone saying: "No 'normal' people read these beer blogs anyway so why does it matter what we write?" ('normal' people meaning - not beer geeks) I can say without doubt that that is a load of nonsense!

We get a magazine at the shop on a two week basis, you may have heard of it, it's called Off Licence News.

This is a very respectable magazine. So much so that Zak writes an article for them every 2 weeks, as do a couple of other writers you may know like Tim Atkins - wine guru, and Nigel Huddleston - drinks evangelist.

I mention this only because whilst browsing through the "Spittoon" section today I came across this:

Interesting hmm? Well if you don't quite know who Cooking Lager is by now, then seriously.... where have you been? .....But more to the point, if a respectable magazine is open minded enough to print the tweets of one passionate beer blogger, then it should make you think a little more carefully before you write your opinions down. As we all know once it's on the web, everyone can see it, not just the 'beer geeks'!! As Pete Brown said, as well as others, we need to stop being so negative and start blogging about why beer is great!! Because at the end of the day, everyone has the ability to read what we write, and probably does.
