    GBBF 2008 - The American Beers


    Sometimes you get some news which is almost too good to share. I've been keeping my eyes on the list of foreign beers that will be at this year's Great British Beer Festival for a few weeks, and although the list has slowly grown and with that growth become slightly better, nothing has prepared me for the final list which has appeared today.

    The cask list has been there a week or so, and is very impressive. I am particularly looking forward to the highly rated The Angel's Share. However, just check out the list of American bottled beers we are promised. There's a couple of breweries there I've not heard of, although I'll be researching them before going to Earls Court. OK, so there are limited quantities of about twenty odd of them, but these are beers which we may never see in this country again, and are not to be missed.

    For those of us who are going to be there for the first couple of days, we are really spoilt for choice. Thank you BSF beer purchaser!!

    Thank-you indeed. And mine's a pint of Cantillon.

    Will you be there on the trade day? If so, perhaps we can touch base after our near miss at Leicester.

    Dubbel. Yes I'm there Tuesday and Weds. May not stray far from BSF. I think most UK bloggers will be about on the Tuesday. I'm sure we'll all meet up.
