Sally Toms is still recovering from the first Beers of the World Live

So that’s it. Finito. The first Beers of the World Live event is in the bag, and the staff here at BOTW are quite simply shattered. Like many, I have done more than my share of bar work, but until now I never thought it was possible to get blisters just from opening beer bottles. More than 5,000 p...
