I went to the Great British Beer Festival 2008

Last Tuesday went to the estimable Great British Beer Festival 2008 at Earls Court.

As usual, there was an excellent selection of beers from across the UK, but I did notice that on the geographically-based bars, there were some slightly strange decisions on which beers appeared in which area.

For instance, when did Stockport (home of Robinsons) and Moss Side (home of Hydes) become part of the Peak District?

    We noticed some rather strange geographically reshuffling, as well. Some of the placements seemed quite random.

    Yes the layout did seem a little confusing – but there again a swift half here and a swift half there and there and there and there who cares? The beer standards were well up to it as expected. The tube station is just accross the road so negotiating my way home was not tooooo dificult (use one eye at a time – it makes everything so much clearer). Thanks to CAMRA for a great event.

    See you next year
