Mobile App Top Beers

Well this year’s festival is done and dusted, and probably great timing, as the heavens have opened as I write this, and it’s rather wet outside.  Another fantastic year, some great beers, more great memories, and just one dodgy moment (those dart toilets). So the votes in my mobile app have been counted, and I’ve discounted the beers with only 1 vote, as it’s too open to one ‘odd’ vote. The top 25 are as...

2014 Festival Day 4; Psych-O-Bombs!

2014 Festival Day 4; Psych-O-Bombs!

While the Peterborough beer festival is over five days (continues today, Saturday), I am now done and dusted.  I normally only manage 3 days, but I managed to pace myself enough that I could go again Friday to watch a friend play in the music tent. Press pass in hand, I turned up at 5pm, more than enough time to try a few more halves before Psych-o-bombs hit the stage.  So enjoy a few beers I did, including some of the last of Xtreme ales beer...

2014 Festival Day 3; IPA Be With You

2014 Festival Day 3; IPA Be With You

Well I made it through day 3 of the Peterborough beer festival.  After two busy days, I gave myself a little time at home, timing my arrival at 2.50pm so I could still get in free with my CAMRA membership card, and still leaving myself a long session there. Thursday night is the traditional ‘go from work’ night – and I did meet up with some old colleagues of mine (as I’m not currently working I had no work to go from...

2014 Festival Day 2; Champion Beers

2014 Festival Day 2; Champion Beers

Wednesday at the beer festival – what is always the quietest day for numbers through the door (Thurs will ramp it right back up today I’m sure), but it was personally a fantastic day. I arrived at the beer festival venue about 10:50, to be greeted by local brewer, and for the new few hours, CAMRA judging session organiser, Steve Saldana.  Or as I and many call him, Texas Steve. I didn’t know any of my fellow 30 or so judges,...

It all Starts Tomorrow!

It all Starts Tomorrow!

The set-up team have been hard at work, building the festival site ready for us punters to visit from tomorrow (Tues 19th Aug) – I’d like to thank them for all their hard work, them and the volunteers who serve us our beers during the five long days! The picture below by Adam Miller shows the site in all it’s glory – I’m guessing from high up in the Cathedral?   Great shot. I’m all ready to go – shame...

Mobile App Beer List Finalised & Korean Brewers

Mobile App Beer List Finalised & Korean Brewers

I’ve had the very last beer update from Harry @ Peterborough CAMRA, so the mobile app is now the final beer list, as delivered to the festival!   391 cask ales are on the list, more than anyone could hope to sample in five days, even if having the new 1/3 pint measures. Throw in 150+ bottled beers, nearly a 100 ciders and English wines, and that’s a lot to try! So make sure you bookmark the url on your...

My GBBF Trip; Beerfest Warm-up!

My GBBF Trip; Beerfest Warm-up!

I’ve never been to the Great British Beer Festival before – yes I know, shocking!  But that duck was broken yesterday, as I happy to join Karl (local CAMRA PR and press guy) who had a spare ticket for the Friday session. We jumped on a 10.09am train down to London, then walked from Kings Cross to Euston hoping to have a swift one at the Euston Tap before we carried on.  Unfortunately we’d forgotten that London pubs often...
