Some of you are quick off the mark. I only announced the photo competition yesterday, and already three readers have come forward with a clutch of entries. I'm planning to post a selection of the photos I receive every week on Friday. Here's the first batch. Remember, the competition closes on Monday 17 December. If you want a crack at those prizes, get your entries in to firstname.lastname@example.org now.
Andrew from Oxfordshire has taken two photos that pay homage to one of his favourite local breweries, Brakspear. He's also submitted a sombre image of spent beer barrels, lashed with rain late at night.
Gazza Prescott submitted these images from Tamworth Beer Festival, 2002. The first is of a frothy spile. The second is of casks lined up on stillage (a welcome sight for any beer lover, particularly a "scooper" like Gazza).
Another couple from Gazza. He was enjoying Belgian beer in his front room, and looked down into his glass to see the mysterious image of a heart had appeared in the foam. If that's not a ringing endorsement for sitting on your arse drinking beer, I don't know what is. The second photo was taken in Croatia, where he was touring with mates. The lads are presenting their makeshift beer cooler. Happy days.
