GREAT BRITISH BEER FESTIVAL (2) - 9th August 2008 - Earls Court, TQ253 782

Travellers

TC, PV, ROC, KOC, PC & RN
There was no TM this year; he was leading J & LA on a Real Ale Ramble
around Farnham including a bus ride out to Churt).

Comments

TC was attending after a gap of a few years so PV went up early,
racing the rain all the way; meeting up at Woking and travelling on
via Wimbledon and the District Line to arrive at the festival around
12.00 am. The rest travelled up latter via Clapham and the bus
replacement service, arriving around 1.00 pm.
By then TC & PV had made a start on the German beers and even managed
to secure half a table by the foreign bar, by muscling in on a couple
of nice lads, Anthony and Steve.
Olaf had rung the changes on the beers from Tuesday, including
bringing on one of our favourites, Augustiner Edelstoff. It even
seemed a little less crowded than recent years, so we stayed a bit
longer than usual, reliving our youth listening to the Fulham Brass
Band Ensemble and enjoying some really top notch German draught.
Even the bus back to Clapham was reasonably punctual and there was
only a short wait at the station for the train back to Aldershot and
the Garden Gate (for some).
