82nd #TheSession Announcement: Beery Yarns

I last hosted communal beer blogging event #TheSession back in November 2011. 24 Sessions on and I've volunteered again. I can reveal the topic now that Nitch is done with hers, cheers for hosting! Date for your diaries is Friday 6th December (though expect plenty of reminders nearer the time!). That's two weeks guys and gals.

The nights are drawing in, there may even be snow, what better way to enjoy a beer than in front of a log fire. Turn that TV off and talk to your drinking compatriots. Maybe you're just at home with some friends or maybe in a decent local boozer chatting to complete strangers. This month I'm going to give you plenty of scope for originality by setting a wide-open theme. I want to hear your beery tall tales, yarns, recollections (in a Grandpa Simpson stylee) or otherwise, delivered in the manner that you befits sitting around a log fire, favourite beer in hand. Only proviso is that it has to involve beer in some way, whether that be a particular beer jogging your memory of a previous event or beer taking a bigger role in the recollected tale. Its up to you. Interjections, corrections, addendums can all be contributed the assembled masses in your comments section.

A suitable December topic I think (though of course there are some bloggers for whom it is now summer; so imagine that you're sharing beers on the beach around a camp-fire.)

As per usual, please let me know when you've done a post, either by leaving a link in the box below or tweeting me @beersiveknown. Or both if you're that way inclined. And if you don't have a blog of your own but still wish to contribute then fear not; I can post your thoughts for you, just drop me an email beersiveknown AT gmail DOT com. I'll post a round up the week following.

I look forward to reading everyone's tall tales!
