Notes on a Beermat Reading at Volo

I posted a small review of Nicholas Pashley's revised Notes on a Beermat: Drinking and Why It's Necessary book back on November 2nd, and I mentioned that there would be a reading held at Volo in November. Well, pardon me, I was wrong. The reading will now take place on Sunday December 7th at 2pm at Volo.

Pashley will be reading certain sections from his book while sharing stories about his journeys in and out of pubs during many years of travel. He will also share stories about how he's come to appreciate craft beer, more importantly, cask conditioned beer. Pashley will be selling copies to those interested and individuals will be given the opportunity to have theirs signed personally.

There will be a number of casks available to help mark the occasion, as Durham’s Blakk Kat Stout, Great Lakes Green Tea Ale and Great Lakes Sage And Spruce Winter Wit have all been confirmed.

This should be a real treat as Pashley is a very clever, quick witted man with a dry sense of humour and he will undoubtedly entertain all those who attend. The cask conditioned beers won't hurt either.

So come out to Volo and help support a local author, a local pub patron and a local supporter of craft beer. You won't leave disappointed.

There will be no admission charge, but the reading starts promptly at 2:00.
