Farnham - 26th to 28th April 2007

Thursday 26th Evening - PV, MG, ROC, KOC, TM & DF

Back to it’s normal month of April we were again blessed with some
lovely weather for Beerex 2007. The usual crowd welcomed the return
of Blue Anchor, along with some old favourites and some new breweries
to try. Much the same as the previous 30 years then but will we ever
tire of Farnham?

Friday 27th Evening - PV & MV

The request for more CAMRA members to help out at Farnham did not go
unheeded and PV and MV volunteered. The free beer had nothing to do
with the decision, honest.

Saturday 28th Afternoon - PV, MG, ROC, KOC. TM, DF, PC, RN, TC & JA

Only ten of us this year but our ranks were swollen by Mike from B&T
and his crowd. It turns out that B&T had no Shefford Pale Ale at the
brewery, well not the 3.8% variety anyway, and unbeknown to the
organisers, they substituted a 5% sample instead. During the session
Mike was presented with the certificate for Best Strong Beer at last
year’s Woking Beer Festival, which they won with Black Bat.
As usual, a very good festival made all the better for the lovely
spring weather.
