I went to the world’s biggest real ale and cider festival – in Shepherds Bush!

I attended the Wetherspoon Real Ale and Cider Festival at The Central Bar in Shepherds Bush, West London, yesterday.

The Festival, which is running at participating Wetherspoon pubs, continues until Sunday 14 November 2010.

Included are some international ales, shown by [I] below.

Full details are given in the festival programme [2MB PDF].

Here’s the drinks I sampled, along with marks out of ten:

Alan Partridge’s Mid Morning Matters

Alan Partridge‘s career progresses to his new show on North Norfolk Digital.

The Trip

I’ve just caught up with the first two episodes of The Trip on iPlayer, and it’s very good indeed.

Bringing together Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon, along with director Michael Winterbottom, it reunites the trio involved in A Cock And Bull Story and 24 Hour Party People – both great films.

The Trip – highly recommended.
