Its been a while since we had a mass tasting

and the 26th of this month is 5th Aniversarry of me meeting Simon

http://www.ratebeer.com/event/7225/

So heres the Suggestion (and i know its a friday)

anyone that wants to take part. Go find a Beer simons rated, You have 1234 to choose from. Pick one that suits you.

Dont tell anyone till the night.

Then we can all get together, raise a toast and talk good times and why we chose the beer we did.


Ive added an event (as either way iíll be drinking at toast to our meeting)

Anyone who doesnít know who we are talking about, itís Simon H Johnson (twitter name Simonhjohnson), known on the beer scene as Haddonsman

http://www.ratebeer.com/View-User-11409.htm

See his user profile and as Craig says pick any of the beers he has rated and drink it on Friday 26th June.

Simon unfortunately passed away at the too early age of 44 in May and is a much missed part of the UK beer scene.

Without doubt the funniest, wittiest and erudite member of this site I have ever met. And that really is saying something.

The Sheffield Tap on Platform 1 of Sheffield Station just wonít be the same without him.

Iíll have to give it a try but of course that is the one weekend this month I am not around Derby (where it would be hard to throw a stone without finding one).

We will be at Indietracks a small music festival with numerous Indie Bands at a Heritage Railway station, free steam train trips during the w/e with one of the stages actually the bands playing on the trains. The festival is nr Ripley, Derbyshire, probably just 12-15 miles from where Simon lived, I think heíd approve. I will certainly raise a glass and take part, a lovely idea Craig :-)

Just been reading some of Simons reviews Brewdog Ipa is Dead Sorachi Ace and Magic Rock Human Cannonball made me chuckle. However as for beers to try well I have plenty of Rochefort 10s which sit top of tree and I also have some Bracia which I kniw he absolutely loved and its a great rating btw, that sits 2nd on the list and I still have one of the original bottles that he would have rated so maybe I should crack open that.
