A while ago I wrote an article explaining why I had said no to a brewery’s offer of free beer.
It came off as high and mighty, it wasn’t my intention but it did. Well, since then I have been offered beer a few more times and said no thank you a few more times.
Recently, I said yes. So how did I fall off my high horse? Well its simple really. I don’t have as much beer as I once did.
Whereas, before my main reason for saying “no” was that I simply had too much beer and there was no point in taking beer that I might not be completely interested while other beer rots in my fridge. Its just not cool.
The fact is I’m getting married this summer and although I have wonder family helping my income is being stretched and I cannot afford to consume as much beer as I have in the past.
Craft Breweries are trying to make a living and offering beer to bloggers and the like is one of the great ways they can keep the beer-intelligensia writing.
So I have swallowed my pride, said “yes, thank you”, and you can probably expect to see it on my instagram.
That said you can also expect to see my honest opinion too.
