Top Beer Tweets of 2014

For the second year in a row, here’s a list of some Tweets that tickled us in the past 12 months.

Because they told us something we didn’t know, expressed an idea efficiently, or simply made us laugh, we favourited, re-Tweeted, or included them in one of our weekly round-ups.

1. The Beer Nut observes an amusing juxtaposition in Bamberg.

2. There’s a lot of history encapsulated in this one photo.

3. We see a lot of lovely pub livery passing through our timeline but this was particularly eye-catching.

4. You can keep your Horrible HistoriesMaid Marian and Her Merry Men was the original and the best.

5. A portrait of a Sheffield brewer by a visiting Canadian.

6. The horror… the horror!

7. Zing!

8. As we said when we featured this in our weekly round-up, what a time it is to be alive.

9. As the so-called weatherbomb hits, here’s a shot of a pub in Newlyn standing up to the sea during last winter’s storms.

10. An astonishing revelation from James ‘BrewDog’ Watt — how different things might have been! (Reggae Reggae IPA….?)

11. Home brewing: not even once.

12. From our top tweeter of 2013, a joke which relies on pronouncing gueuze properly.

13. Food and music pairing from the Tao of Keeling.

14. Cold War history from Keith Flett.

15. An astute observation.

16. High concept home brewing.

17. Psychedelic home brewing.

18. We tried this; it didn’t work.

19. Presumably a rather murky beer.

20. And, finally, the problem with Twitter summed up.

Whereas the great thing about blog comment boxes is that you can express yourself at much greater length, because the absence of the 140-character limit makes it possible to state one’s case using longer and more elaborate formulations, in contrast to the brevity and concision imposed on Twitter users, which has the effect of making it difficult to express complex ideas or extended trains of thought, which can (by contrast) be developed to their full extent in the blog comment box, which has no Twitter-like 140-character limit and makes it possible to express yourself at much greater length.

Which is handy when you’ve got something to say.
