As 2019 turned into 2020, the Good Beer Week team was preparing to throw the mother of all parties.
The country's biggest celebration of beer was set to run for the tenth time, with all the added excitement such an anniversary brings with it.
Then, as with most major events in 2020, it was no more.
But, just as we'll be throwing parties from late 2021 onwards for The Crafty Pint's 10+1 birthday, the pandemic just means the tenth Good Beer Week won't just be a celebration of a decade of delights, but also of *crosses fingers* crushing COVID.
Details will follow closer to the festival – although we can confirm the Pint of Origin will be part of it once more – but for now you can put May 14 to 23 in your diaries. And start saving your pennies and leave.
