Alton Winter Beer Festival - 16th February 2008

Comment

The ‘winter’ beer festival was again blessed with good weather; 
right and sunny, if a trifle cold. With Ray in New Zealand only five
were in attendance but our group was swelled by the arrival of Steve
and John.
With Eric having recovered from his heart attach, Mike and the rest
of the B&T crew were back on the festival circuit. John was thus able
to ask Mike about supplying a beer festival he was thinking of
putting on in 2009. Mike said it would present no problem, as he
would be able to supply not only the beer but also provide the
stilage and cooling jackets.
The list consisted of mainly local microbrewers beers, although a few
more northerly brews had been slipped in. Mike managed to exert
enough influence so that Golden Fox won beer of the festival.

Paul V tried the following beers: -
