CROSSWAYS INN BEER FESTIVAL - Churt, SU 854 382

Travellers - 11th July 2008

PV and MV

Comments

A previous engagement (at which he was not allowed to turn up drunk)meant 
PV could not attend the Saturday session with the rest of the
crowd. However, with MV offering to drive, a Friday evening visit was
possible.
Intermittent rain keep everyone, apart from the smokers, indoors and
the pub was very busy even by arrival at 7.00 pm. No seats and dogs
under your feet was not the most restful of positions but the beer
made up for any inconvenience.
As usual, there was a choice of forty beers including quite a few
from Scotland. The Dark Star Hophead was its excellent self and
matched by the Loddon Bamboozle. And, without another present, PV
could try a Mild. Very nice it was too.

All at the Bus Station and just in time MG. No bus, it was late and
the ticket machine kept giving Tel short tickets. So requiring a new
machine we had a very nice visit to the Traction Company yard then
back all the way round town and off into the blue.
A twenty minute late start had then to be made up. The usual suspects
grabbed a table in the Public bar, started a kitty and onto the very
good and large beer list.
Due to the smell of the sewer coming out of the gents most of the
public bar cleared. We found that there was plenty of room by then in
the saloon bar and back to the list.
As normal the last three halves went very quick and off to catch the
bus. It was a Double Decker and we had a white knuckle ride back
along the country lanes to Aldershot. I had left my bike at the
station and my mates left me halfway up Eggars Hlll.
I caught up with them drinking with the Martians and PC, so had a
pleasant hour drinking IPA.
