Before the KPC went all information superhighway on t’interweb, we used to rely solely on our newsletter ‘Briar & Bothies’ to spread the word of the modern day pipe smoking revolution. Being both ‘educational’ and satirical, Briar & Bothies takes an askance look at pipe smoking, bothies and the world in general. So hopefully you will find something entertaining to read when enjoying a bowl of your favourite blend. The newsletter will continue to be published on a (roughly) quarterly basis, so please check for updates.

Why not contact us if you have an idea, article, letter or anything else of pressing import that you would like included in Briar & Bothies?
