|If these shelves could talk... they'd talk about beer.|
It was a decision that made economic, personal and career sense; however, it was not without regret. Working at Beer Ritz was, quite frankly, the best job I had ever had (until now of course). It was something I was interested in and gave me tremendous scope for learning, socialising and generally opening up my mind to the world of beer. When I took the job I thought to myself 'this is the chance to really get stuck into the beer community', and that's exactly what I've found myself doing. Don't get me wrong, I'm total small-fry when it comes to beer blogging/tweeting/networking but those people who I have met through the job, I've found to be extremely decent, down to earth folk who I've had a lot of time for.
So without rambling too much, cheers to all those who I've had the pleasure of meeting in the last 7 months - you have all educated, inspired and motivated me in some way. And a HUGE Cheers to Beer Ritz & Beer Paradise and their continued success in the market!
Now I'll let you enjoy some photos from the staff Christmas night out...
