Beer and technology are an integral part of many a man's (and woman's for that matter) life these days.
The Driftwood Spars in St Agnes is managing to combine both in a glorious, and truly international, Celebration of Beer between Friday, March 15 and Sunday, March 17.
Brian-child of the ever-creative Louise Treseder, the Celebration of Beer is a beer festival like you have probably never seen before.
"We are lucky enough to have superfast broadband at the Driftwood Spars and have previously held wine tasting sessions with live video link ups to winemakers." Said Louise.
"I thought, why don't we do the same at our beer festival?
"So we will be linking live to the Sierra Nevada brewery in California over the weekend for a Cybeer tasting session.
"In addition to that we are extremely lucky to have Monsieur Rock from the Orval Brewery in Belgium coming over to give a 'Talk and Taste' session."
Roger Protz, editor of the CAMRA Good Beer Guide, one of the countries leading experts on beer will also be sharing his expertise and anecdotes at the event.
He said; "The Driftwood Spars is at the forefront of the great Cornish beer revival.
"As well as producing delicious prize-winning beers itself, the "Drifty" features not only beers from established Cornish brewers such as St Austell, Sharps and Skinners, but ales from the new legion of small producers in the county.
"The pub is in an inspirational location for a beer festival and I'm looking forward with keen anticipation to sampling some great beers on 15 March -- along with some fine pasties!"
The Celebration of Beer festival will also feature 20 specially selected beers, including some brewed for the event and live music on the Friday and Saturday night.
