We’re very grateful to Steve AKA @untilnextyear for pointing this clip out to us. Do any of you CAMRA veterans recognise the participants, or perhaps even yourself? The hipster in the Washington University top wouldn’t look out of place at a craft beer festival in 2015.
PS. Our long article about Covent Garden ’75 features in the current edition of CAMRA’s BEER magazine which is technically only available to members but is probably also knocking about a shelf in your local real ale pub.
From Bayerischer Rundfunk, a short report (1 min) on IPA, the ‘Neues Trendbier’, which is worth watching for the shots (from 30 seconds in) of veteran German beer drinkers reacting with disgust at the aroma and flavour. (In German, but you’ll get the gist…)
If, like us, you remained fascinating by cans (they’re so space age!) then this video by Bill ‘Engineer Guy’ Hammack is a must-watch, not least because of the wonderful jargon — ‘seaming chuck’ is our favourite.
(There are going to be craft beer marketing people everywhere looking at those impractical spherical and cuboid cans and thinking, ‘Uh… where can we buy those?’)
