Have I been far too shy about this? I am having a bit of a meeting of the administrative department evening here at "La Maison De La Bonne Blog Des Bieres"¹ - sending out invoices for ads, planning summer beer shopping trips - when I realized it had been a little while since I got a good slew of samples. I am thankful to have a review pending for Innis & Gunn as well as one for Beau's but, really, why are the rest of you brewers, distributors and PR people out there not inundating me with samples of your stuff? Deschutes has been steady as has Shipyard and a few others. Narragansett has always forwarded surprising treats, now that I think of it. But why not all of you? Look, I share them around, get honest reactions and post reasonably ethical reviews, don't I?
I have been too shy about this, haven't I. So, just so we are all absolutely clear, whether you are in Buffalo or Brussels and have a bottling line, please drop me a line at email@example.com so I can send the address. Samples of other beery stuff? Send me an explanation about that, too, and we'll see. Books? Sure. Ad placements? Dandy. Too forward of me? The administrative department has decided it likes forward. But they do thank you for your consideration.
