Comment

Nice sunny summer day, not to warm, just the right temperature to try
a few beers. Paul V arrived just before 2.00 pm and just had time to
see Mike from B&T and thank him for the tickets before Ray and Dave
arrived. Securing seats by the Bieres sans Frontieres bar there was
little incentive to move far, although Dave did manage a wander.
Olaf was, as usual, in charge of supplying the German beers and this
year had done even better with 15 of the 37 listed draught beers
available at one time. Of particular note was the Josef Greif
Annafestbier, which we missed out on when we visited Forchheim
brewery tap was closed for refurbishment) and the Waldmeister Weizen
from the new Braustelle brewpub in Cologne (as recommended by El Tel).
With Paul and Ray having tried all the draught German beers they
wanted by 6.30 pm, it was time to go. For a change the railway
journey home went quite well and we arrived in Aldershot just in time
to walk home in a downpour.

Postscript

PV did not want me to mention the nice pint of IPA I had in the Garden Gate to finish off the day.
