Pudknocker Brewing

Taking home brew to new altitudes... I am a pilot - I will not drink;
But if I do, I will not get drunk;
But if I do, I will not drink in public;
But if I do, I will not stagger or fall downl;
But if I do, I will fall face down...
... so they can't see my wings!

Samuel Adams brews 'Space Craft' beer with Inspiration4-flown hops

The "race to space" continues...

Steven Spurrier died, earlier today. He was at home, at Bride Valley, surrounded by family. Steven was a pioneer in wine - a visionary who never lost his passion for new projects, new discoveries and the world of wine. He will always be remembered for founding the Académie du Vin, the celebrated Judgement of Paris and in recent years, the Académie du Vin Library and, together with his wife Bella, the Bride Valley Vineyard in Dorset, England – as well as much else besides. He was also a hugely loved husband, father and grandfather. He will be sorely missed, not just by his immediate family and friends, but by people right across the world of wine. His enthusiasm and love of wine will live on through Bride Valley, the Académie du Vin Library, the relaunched Académie du Vin in Canada and through the work of the many wine makers, wine writers and wine educators he championed.

A memorial will be organised in due course.
