The Oxted Beer Festival

I haven’t gone every year, but I think I have for the last few, and it’s been ok. My big gripe with this beer festival is the cost. It’s more expensive than the Great British Beer Festival and is no way near as good! So why does it cost so much, and why has it…

So it’s the first of October 

And October is my favourite month of the year as well. I think it’s a lovely time of year when seasons change and the weather gets colder and more pronounced, and it becomes that time to dust off the winter coat. Also it’s a great time for ale too as the darker ales come out…

And the next batch from Beer 52 arrives

Ok, it was last week, but I thought I’d mention it. I had a couple of less than perfect experiences with the last batch, so I’m hoping for much more satisfactory experience this time around. I’ll be sinking the first one or two in a day or so. I’ll let you know the results.

Now that’s a lovely ale

I often have Gem at WOMAD, so when I recently saw it in the local supermarket I thought I’d try a couple of bottles. Well it was just as good as the draft. I was really impressed I have to say.
