Great British Beer Festival

Postby Beerhunter on Thu Aug 04, 2011 10:52 pm

Anyone been this year? I'm heading there Friday... so looking to for tips on what to try (and what to avoid - not that there is anything I won't try :shock: )

Looking at the beer list, hope to sample;
* Some of the beers from Windsor & Eton Brewery, in particular Conqueror Black IPA
* Hopefully Surrey Hills may have their new Greensland IPA on

Doesn't look like Spingo from the Blue Anchor has made it to GBBF this year... last time I was there, I was next in line when they ran out :(

Other than that, aiming to concentrate on small breweies that are far away (and no they are not small cause they are far away!) from London; Any beer drinkers from Scotland, Cumbria, Northumberland, Durham, Cornwall areas got any beer recommendations to look out for?

Well I've just about recovered after Fridays session... :shock:

Really good selection of beer this year, and top of the list was De Molen Hot & Spicy (10.2%).... truely astounding. Tastewise lots of cocoa and rich coffee initially, but a heap of smoked firery chilli afterwards :oops: After which I followed with a 11% Russian Imperial Stout, a pint of Hop Bomb - well after the previous couple of beers, no half measures (in any sense) would of worked..then a curry in Brick Lane :D
