THOMAS LORD BEER & MUSIC FESTIVAL - West Meon, SU 644 240

Sunday 20 July 2008

As it was their first attempt at a beer festival, we called in to see
how they had faired. Rather well as it happens. Of the forty-one
beers available at the start of the festival by Sunday only 10 were
still on, and there was not much left of these either. An emergency
call was sent out to Martin at Bowman Ales and he came to the rescue
with several barrels each of three of his beers. Still, as they say,
a choice of thirteen is better than no beer.
Sunday was set aside for Jazz and on arrival the music was being
provided by The Wyvern Youth Jazz Orchestra. They were very good and
made the visit all the more pleasurable. They were followed by
Grandpa Spells (or was it Smells) Jazz, who, un-amplified, were a
little difficult to hear up by the beer tent. They were not our cup
of tea.
Much more to our liking were the homemade pizzas from the wood fired
oven recently built in the pub garden. Excellent plain cheese and
tomato pizza, even if it was a little pricey.
