Live beer blogging sees brewers given 5 minutes to share their beers with bloggers whilst they review them, beery speed dating if you will. There are no beer reviews here. Plenty of the 70-odd people in the room will be blogging their thoughts on the beer; some already have (and if you're really desperate to find out my thoughts check ratebeer). Something Susanna from Drink Britain said during her presentation struck a chord: you have to find a different angle to keep people's attention past the first paragraph. So I'm going to look at some of the people & stories behind the beer as after all "beer is people" as Garret Oliver reminded us.

|Beer and chocolate,|
almost as good as beer and cheese
|The original golden ale|
|Liquid chocolate pudding - with chili kick!|
A big thanks to all the breweries for providing samples and everyone who spent time talking to us nosy bloggers about them!
More posts looking at EBBC from a different angle still to come!
