Great British Beer Festival Is Finally Here
After a long wait the beer drinkers Christmas has finally arrived. Last night I was so excited I didn't get to sleep until 3am! With the trade session opening in a little under 10 minutes I'm sure the queue is already forming nicely. I'll be heading down later as a volunteer where I'll be all week both serving and sampling some of the massive range of beers available.
The GBBF really is a wonderful occasion. It's a time for beer drinkers to unite, have a pint and have a jolly good time. I love beer festivals. From the obsessive beer list tickers to the after work pint swillers there's something for everyone and I whole heartedly encourage anyone to head down to GBBF this week if they can.
Seeing as my beloved phone was stolen last week I won't be able to make live updates on twitter but I will be blogging each night (hopefully the beer won't have impaired me that much) about the days events so stay tuned for more from GBBF. I'll also try and post which beers are popular and which there seems to be a buzz about so that your visit can be most enjoyable.
