    Another Friday - Another Northants Beer Festival

    The George at Tiffield was the scene of the second succesive Northamptonshire Beers Festival weekend following three pubs event.

    I went on the Friday night, meeting up there with a crowd from Northants CAMRA. There were fourteen beers from Frog Island, Great Oakley, Hoggleys, Nobbys, and Potbelly. I didn't try them all, not suprisingly, but do have to report that Potbelly Beijing Black again took pride of place, although Great Oakley Gobble wasn't far behind.

    It's great that local pubs can put in festivals of this nature in their pursuit of LocAle status. It's not many years ago that there weren't enough breweries in the county to do this. I'm pretty sure all our breweries are doing well, and long may it continue.

    Potbelly are a really useful brewery, it's not uncommon to see their beer in my neck of the woods. Never normally disappoints.
