It's been a busy week with work, and one very special announcement we (TheBeerNut, Séan Billings and myself) have published over on IrishCraftBrewer.com: our intention to form a more official, organised body to represent beer consumers' interests in Ireland, and indeed representing Irish craft/micro-brewed beer abroad (well, in Germany at least! :).
This organisation will be called Beoir. You can read the announcement here.
I think this is pretty significant, and it means it'll be another group joining the likes of PINT, Zythos and CAMRA under the European Beer Consumers Union, all going according to plan of course, and given how IrishCraftBrewer.com has grown since we started it almost three years ago, there's no reason to believe this won't succeed.
