Beer Thursday

A lovely evening and so we popped along to the Beer Festival for beer and dinner. Started of with Hog Roast rolls with apple sauce, then Michael had a curry plate and I had fish and chips (bit of a greedy night).

Met up with Susan, Colin, Helen, Ian, Claire, Graeme, Andrew and Dave, which was lovely.

Michael tried:

  • Whitewater (Newry, Co. Down) Mayflower
  • Oulton (Oulton Board, East Anglia) Sunrise
  • Organic (Helston, Cornwall) Hazlenphron Gold

Graham tried:

  • Breconshire (Brecon) Red Dragon
  • Old Stables (Sir William Peel,Sandy, Bedfordshire) Palomino Pale Ale
  • Rockingham (Blatherwycke, Northants) Golden Dragon

The festival site on Jesus Green was really busy when we left at 9.15. It was great to see it packed. I had intended to volunteer behind the bar tonight but I left work too late really!
