GREAT BRITISH BEER FESTIVAL (1) - 5th August 2008 - Earls Court

Travellers

PV, DF and Jim

Comment

PV meet up with DF and his friend, Jim, at Aldershot Station and with
no train problems arrived in the festival about half past two. The
Bieres sans Frontieres bar had been relocated near the entrance and
soon PV was sampling his first choice of the seventeen draught German
beers Olaf had made available this session. DF and Jim located a
table and started on the British beers.
The Surrey/Hants Borders members had also parked themselves at the
foreign beer bar, so although we did not wander far quite a number of
acquaintances called by and exchanged their disbelief that Triple fff
Alton’s Pride had been voted Champion Beer of Britain. Although a
search was made, Mike and the rest of the crew from B&T were nowhere
to be seen.
After getting through too many German beers PV left DF and Jim to it.
The journey home must have gone to plan, as PV was asleep on the
floor when MV got in shortly after nine. It was the Mahrs Weizen Bock
that did for him.

Below is PV’s list of German beer tried.
