12 march - local


this is the london drinker ale festival, held in the camden centre (which, happily, is next to one of our main sites). two of my colleagues and i tool a half day and hit the lunch session, there were a lot of grey haired, bearded men there. it would have been easier to count who wasn't grey and beardy.

for the first time, there were more london breweries than the rest of the uk. there's been a large increase in micro and craft breweries which is great to see.

a few men seemed unhappy at seeing "others" at "their" festival, but generally, most were very welcoming, if a wee bit patronising at first. but, in a conversation, as soon as they realised i liked beer and knew a bit about it, they were lovely indeed. a fun afternoon, and educational.

i now need to gulp down supper (and a lot of water!!) and go play bass trombone in the first brass band concert of the year.

what could possibly go wrong???!
