The Alfred BEER FESTIVAL

Upper Hale, GU9 0JA

Saturday 30 April 2011


A normal Alfred Beer Festival, some by bus, one walking and one on his bike and one in his urban tractor. The weather was very warm and it was nice and quiet until the Martins turned up (not that bad) Pat, Tom and Tom and the boy (Dan). Yes and as Pat said with a Guinness in her "Ah look there's a beer festival on"

Back to the beer a good selection was provide and as we all went our own way the card was nearly covered. Twelve beers on tap and 6 ready to go, yes enough to last well into Monday.

The talk as normal ranged from the topic of the moment the Royal Wedding, wearing spurs and other practices (PC will explain why he was dressed as a cowboy once). There was an attempt to count the Oh Dear, Dears etc. the landlord said as he passed us earlier on and why he had no comment on the Martson's - Perfect Union the very last item on the list. As you can see from the list there was an attempt at a royal or wedding theme.

Charlie was also attempting to explain to Pat about the cats that would get into the house if the windows were left open (as he had just informed the people that came to view the house). This had never happened but he thought he had better warn the intended buyers.
