From the website aletalk.co.uk comes this handy list – a calendar of UK beer festivals of all sizes, more comprehensive (and user-friendly) than the one on CAMRAs site.
Worth a look if you’re festival-inclined.
Here are the beers from the tasting at the October meeting – a selection of microbrews from northern France that although with definite influences from across the Belgian border, have a unique character of their own. Who said the French don’t make good beer?
From left to right:
Brasserie Au Baron – Saison Saint Médard
Amber Bière de Garde, 7% ABV
Brasserie d’Annoeullin – Lepers 8
Brasserie du Caou – Kaou’ët Brune
Biere Brune, 7% ABV
Brasserie du Caou – Kaou’ët Triple

And a bottle of sweet farmhouse cider, just for good measure.
We’ll be the smart, good-looking ones hanging out by the ‘Real Ale in a Bottle’ stand all night (well, 6pm ->), come and say hi.
