    Leicester Beer Festival Next Week

    I'm going to the Leicester Beer Festival a week today. It's a great beer festival in a good venue with plenty of seating and decent food. It's made all the better by the fact that I can get there for less than a tenner by public transport. The beer list is here, and I'm promised two beers from Cherwell Valley which regular readers will know is my current obsession. I'm not holding my breath on that score though. Mind you the beer list is so good that there's plenty of other good stuff to drink. It's good to see some emphasis on local brewers as well as stuff from further afield.

    This will be my fourth straight year at the festival, and it is one which I have fond regard for, being the first beer festival my eldest daughter went to, at the grand old age of 17 days!

    If any readers are going, give me a shout.

    The Collectiv' will be there with a great thirst on for the fifth straight year! We've probably noticed you in the past few years if not spoken. Will you be easily distinguishable in the flock of beardy camra types?

    Definitely one of our favourite fests on the circuit, beer & (Indian) food quality always through the roof, a good inclusive atmosphere & always loads of new brews to wrap your lips around. Very excited about draught BrewDog Paradox batch 006 at 10%. Rest of the lineup looks as original & interesting as ever.

    Maybe see you Wednesday...

    YCC. It's Thursday I'll be there not Wednesday.

    If you are there on Thurs, then I'm the one without the beard, but with the notebook. I'll be with The Reluctant Scooper and some of his fellows from Derby.

    My ugly mug is on this post:

    If you are there then come on over.

    I'll be there Weds night so if the Paradox is on you can all go knickers as I'm having it all ;-)

    And I'll be reluctantly scooping on Thursday. And possibly back for the hell of it on Saturday.

    My pic is here:

    We'll be there Weds, Thurs, Fri - playing the long game as is our annual tradition!

    Will look out for the beardless one with pen & pad and a scary clown...
