Eight Bells Beer Fest - 2nd September 2006

Travellers

PV, ROC, KOC, RN, PC and PS

Comment

Arriving a little before 2.00pm we found the festival in full swing.
Well there were about 10 others enjoying the 18 beers on offer. No
confusion with vouchers or festival glasses- there were none. All
beers were £2.00 a pint. This is how to run a pub beer festival.

Afters

After an excellent session, we moved on to The Railway Arms to try
Triple fff’s new beer, brewed in commemoration of Syd Barrett and
suitably named Crazy Diamond (4.6%). Then everyone went his own way.
RN went home. PV went to The Excelsior for a Marston’s Pure Blonde
(4.2%). The rest eventually made their way to The Garden Gate.
And England managed to beat Andorra. Phew, we were all worried about
that.
