It was a year ago today that I started the current version of this blog. Here are some of the interesting search terms from 2014, that people entered and arrived at www.luke.co.nz
(In no particular order, just because they are fun).
“nz who drinks the most beer”
“what do beer drinkers want in a premium beer”
“reasons why do people buy beer”
“logical reason to buy beer”
“does db breweries still exist in nz”
“where to get alcohol in auckland after midnight”
“the beer that cost 2million what that the name?”
“what reason boys drink chilled beer”
“do you pay for drinks at beer fest”
These could all make very interesting topics to write about, especially the DB one.
It would be interesting to see what answers people would come up with if these were presented as interview questions.
Beers of Auckland Advent Calendar 2014
DAY 20 – Beers of Auckland – Luke’s Beer+
Conflicted. I was going to make up a beer I drank but I didn’t drink one. I just didn’t feel like it. I was tired. Not just from a late night but from a really big week, big month and big year. The holidays start here.
I’ve also got to a place with the Advent Calendar, where the feedback I have received has been overwhelmingly positive. Thanks. Not for what I have said about the beer, but the commentary around the beer. The other observations, the food, the venue, the questions raised, the discussions started and even the photos taken.
So I thought today I would write a little about what is beyond the blog.
Beyond writing this blog I also collect and post cool/fun links I find during my day from my stream of feeds and emails. The really interesting, helpful and relevant stuff I post to my Tumblr (http://lukenicholas.tumblr.com). I have titled it Luke’s Beer+ as it is more than just my blog posts.
Think of it as a curated list of the better beer related stuff out there. If you are New Zealand based, and interested in beer, a brewer or homebrewer, then this might be of some value to you. Get the latest beer news, without having to look for it.
To make it easier to get these links (rather than visiting the website all the time) I have created a daily email that comes out at 10am every morning with the links from the previous 24 hours.
This makes it easy to skim and see if there is anything of interest. If there are no links then you don’t get an email. Most days there will only be 2-3 links, and probably never more than 6 links.
Check out the previous emails that have been sent out, to get and idea of what it looks like.
