What is Cup of Good Hop?It's a quest to source a beer for each nation competing in the World Cup, and pit them against each other to see which is the greatest combiner of hops, yeast, water and alcohol on the planet.
Cup of Good Hop is here to chart this process and hopefully give you some tips on how you can host your own Beer World Cup this summer.
What stage of development are you at?
The idea is very new (in fact we had it this afternoon - Thurs 13th May 2010), and have one month to get hold of 32 beers, both familiar and wildly obscure. Then we have a further month to bring you our considered opinion of them.
Is there anything I can do to help?
Certainly. If anyone happens to have a bottle hard-to-get beer and have one to spare, drop us a line. For instance, we've yet to work out if North Korea has any breweries, or what the favourite tipple is in the Ivory Coast.
Other tricky ones - advice welcome... Algeria, Cameroon, Paraguay, Serbia, Slovenia and Slovakia.
In the meantime, enjoy the blog.
