Ever wanted to go to the pub with your favourite author? Well 10 lucky competition winners and their guests got to do just that recently when Peter F Hamilton teamed up with Hobgoblin Beer for an evening of SciFi and beer tasting at Wychwood Brewery in Oxfordshire.
As the sun went down, the excited winners and Peter were treated to a fascinating tour of Wychwood Brewery, where they were told all about the origin of Hobgoblin Beer, and walked through the brewing process.
Then it was back to the bar for a beer tasting, whilst Peter read an exclusive passage from his next book, Night Without Stars and answered some fantastic questions from the winners.
It’s safe to say that everyone went home very happy (particularly after trying some of the 7% strength beer), and there was an understandable call for more author events to take place at the pub. (We’re working on it guys).
Thanks to Wychwood Brewery and Hobgoblin for hosting us! Watch this space for more exciting Hobgoblin events in the future. This could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship…
