This thread could do with a bump.
Had to plough through some shit to find it. No
Has everyone switched to Prosecco?

Anyway, third day at the Great British Beer Festival.
Once a year, so makes sense to make the most of it.

Working through the cider's and perry's today.
Not got to the sickly sweet stuff yet.

The remains of last night's Madras await upon return home.
Lie in tomorrow followed by a visit to the theatre of shattered dreams.
Happy days.

 Beers



I did notice that beer and cider makers are now going to avoid the use of names for their products which could be deemed sexist, mainly derogatory towards women. The idea being such sexism won't encourage women to drink ale.... whatever next, buxom barmaids with their cleavage covered up  Hmmm

I've noted a big push to relate Marijuana with Beer here, specifically IPA's.  As an example, a local favourite is Sweetwater 420.

IPA has really grown on me in the past three years, to the point where I choose it over the European style Lagers now.  It helps that a local Bar has a loyalty scheme where you get credits for each new beer you drink, I'm on 95.  Recently someone got to 4,000!  I think you can double up points on certain days and can repeat some beers in bottle form, but even allowing for playing the system, that's impressive and still being alive.

Normally a very good attendance of women here each year.
Good to see.

Some of the T shirts on offer used to be a bit close to the mark.
That's changed.
Oliver Reid is still fondly depicted though.

Noticed that 'bitter' is being phased out as a description in favour of 'amber ale' in an effort to appeal to younger potential ale drinkers

Just wandered past the International Beers bar here.
Lots of American beer on offer and a lot of the barrels have run out so it's proving popular.
All strong stuff though!
There's a 12% from a New Mexico brewery, 4 for a 1/3 of a pint. Eek

Hopefully movement of beer will be tariff free in the soon to be brave new world.

The stomach has settled down from this morning when there was a danger of wet fart follow through.

Won't be a problem in the DRS tomorrow as the old boys sat in front normally spend most 90 minutes farting away anyway.

Home bargains have 6 cans of Brooklyn lager for 3.99. Now that is a bargain.

The standard stuff tends to be in the 6%-7% range but there are always a few in the 13% area which usually only get served in smaller glasses, Sweetwater are doing a Stout at 13.3% currently.

Tins of Brooklyn Summer ale for 79p as well, which I prefer to the regular lager.  Pint

I thought the summer ale was a bit naff to be honest. Tastes different to the one in the brewery.

Looking to acquire some Mythos or KEO for an impromptu dinner party invite tonight any other Greek or Cypriot beer will do. None of the mainstream corporate shops have either according to their websites.
