The Tea Leaf Paradox PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Tea Leaf Paradox free pdf Join the author and his old Dutch campervan 'Brian' on their quest to visit every brewery in Scotland. Settle down in the passenger seat as you discover the world of beer in the land of whisky! Our journey will take you all over Scotland: to Unst, Britain's most northerly island, to Islay, the spiritual home of Scotch whisky, and to Colonsay, the smallest island in the world with its own brewery! As we travel through many of the most remote and stunning parts of this wild and beautiful country, we also get to meet the people behind the pint. Like the two ex-RAF pilots who brew in the morning and do fighter jet training in the afternoon. Or the Englishman who has brewed beer for nearly 40 years in Scotland's oldest inhabited house. We also come across the siblings on Skye who run competing breweries in the shadow of the Cuillin mountain range. You might enjoy this story for the fabulous journey or perhaps for the amusing insights into our favourite drink, but probably both! Share in the joys and challenges of visiting sixty Scottish breweries and experience the freedom of campervan life. This book will leave you with a new perspective on beer, an affection for Brian and a personal desire to visit Scotland - the land of whisky?

About Robert Middleton

After 26 years in the high-octane environment of the pensions industry I just couldn't stand the excitement any more, so I made my escape and spent two years traveling the world. My travels in Europe were in an old Dutch VW Campervan called Brian and I started to keep a blog of our adventures. When it was time to come home I decided that I wanted to travel and write rather than return to a proper job, but I needed a journey to fuel the story. After reading Iain Banks' book 'Raw Spirit' I was inspired to 'discover beer in the land of whisky' by visiting all of the breweries in Scotland in my 'Campervan for Real Ale', Brian. 'The Tea Leaf Paradox' tells our story. As well as beer, writing and traveling, I love listening to music, going to gigs and hanging out at festivals. I live in Camden Town, London, with my partner Jo and have a son, Nick, in Edinburgh.
