If you are headed to Brussels for the big Beer Odyssey 2014 event, here is a little guide on the beers you will be experiencing.

You can download the interactive PDF, or view the flipbook online.



    Iyangon stayed at the Yuzana Garden Hotel for 10 nights in the middle of 2014, and got to know the place well. I had chosen the hotel because of its colonial origins - it was originally the rooming house for a British trading company - and I was more than happy to find that it retains its colonial charm and style. 

    The hotel stands in a small garden. The lobby is long and spacious, with a high ceiling, and there is plenty of comfortable seating. The rooms are exceptionally large: I started in a Superior room but upgraded to Deluxe halfway through my trip, which was a good move because there is more natural light, a much bigger space, and a balcony looking over the garden. 

    The restaurant has a menu with a choice of Western and Chinese dishes, and the chef must be extremely versatile, because I worked my way through almost the entire Western selection, and everything was good; and I also tried the Chinese side, and that was also good! The bar serves only beer and a couple of wines, no spirits. Breakfast was included in the room rate, and was substantial.

    The Wi-Fi was unreliable, but that is a continual problem in Yangon. I found that the lobby was the best place to use my laptop, and that if the connection wasn't working, asking the staff to reboot the modem usually did the trick. Sometimes however the problem is an ISP outage. And the download speeds are so slow that some pages don't load at all.

    The staff were completely charming, and outstandingly friendly and helpful. By the end of my long stay, I was beginning to feel part of the family.

    Bearing in mind this is a three-star hotel, with Myanmar only just coming to terms with the expectations of international tourists, the value here is exceptionally good. I will certainly stay again. The location is excellent, with the Sule Pagoda and the central railway station within walking distance and Shwedagon Pagoda a 10-minute taxi ride. There is an ATM in the hotel lobby.

    Nha TrangNha Trang Hash is ready for a challenge.   We are hosting Vietnam Nash Hash 2014.   And we will do it with style.    We have one of the Worlds most beautiful Bay's and Hinterland to guarantee you spectacular running.    We have access to boats, Islands, beaches, coral reefs..... the list goes on!!!!!
    We want to show off our small City (it only has a population of 400,000) which still manages to have blue skies and crystal clear water most of the time.  We want to give you a weekend to remember for a long, long time.
    Numbers are capped at 150 people.    Our flyer gives you information on how to express your interest.   If Registration has already opened, and you follow the steps on the flyer.... it okay!     We will receive your expression and let you know what else to do!!!!!    We are here to help and welcome you to our beautiful part of the world!
    Here's a bit of a background on NTH3:
    Run 75 is on Sunday 13 July, 2014.  We run every Sunday so NTH3 is still a very young Hash but growing up quickly.    Most of our members are new to Hashing and we have a core group of experienced long term Hashers.    Being a tourist town, we have our share of visitors every week and we welcome the songs and CIRCLE manoeuvers from their own Kennels.  In the cooler months we are running around 80-90 hashers on a Sunday.   In the hotter months we are between 50-70 strong.   Not bad for a sweltering Sunday afternoon!
    Nha Trang Bay and Hinterlands are areas of immense natural beauty.    The ranges behind the easterly facing bay, protect Nha Trang from the weather extremes experienced by other coastal areas along the Vietnam Coast..  The running is incredibly scenic.    Whether we are running through a Village or past it into rural areas, its the stuff of postcards.  
    Nha Trang Hashers experience different, stunning countryside every week.   And our Club is now so well known that our numbers are 50% local Vietnamese, many of them wanting to see countryside, and an ancient way of life, that they as City locals have rarely or never experienced.  We subsidise local Vietnamese because we want them with us.  They are fun and adventure-loving.   They are also right into our CIRCLE activities .   There have been a few occasions when their presence has saved the day... well actually "the run" for us.
    We look forward to meeting you on Friday 24 October 2014 for the start of one hell of a weekend!

    HASHING STARKERS – It’s been said that hash mores are decidedly different in the United States. Perhaps it’s a desire to cast off the yoke of cultural puritanism that leads at least some Americans to hash in their birthday suits. In any case, opportunities abound with warmer weather. And perhaps this little number from last year will entice you to attend: http://bit.ly/1gSPqqc

    THINKING ABOUT STARTING A HASH? There are many ways to go about it, and this discussion thread may provide some helpful ideas: http://bit.ly/1oXkVj8


    Hashing in Kings Landing and beyond the wall? Croatia, with its beautiful coastline and islands, is a wonderful destination in its own right, but the fact that King’s Landing, Qarth and other "Game of Thrones" locations are filmed there make the area a must-see for fans of the HBO series. If you hurry, you can join the Dalmatian Hash Cruise (14-20 June 2014). Additional details: http://bit.ly/1klfo55 and http://bit.ly/1nFaLXf.  But if White Walkers and the Land of the Nights Watch is more your style, contact Automatic Balls, who is in the planning stages of a Hash Adventure in Iceland: http://bit.ly/1kexA1z
