Beer in the evening
A night out care of Concrete Repairs Ltd at the GGBF 2001 - Great British Beer Festival - at Earls Court. (probably the last time I will go to Earls Court as it is due to be demolished after the Olympics).
Quite a few people were there together with over 700 beers and ciders! My favorite after a brief tasting was 'Crows-an Wra' from the Star Inn, Penzance.(4.3% ABV)
'Rich aroma perfumed with citrus and elderflower. A golden ale well-balanced with bitterness, grapefruit and a little malt in the mouth followed by a long, bitter finish.'
The most eye catching stand was for Wells and Youngs 'Bombardier' which includede a double decker bus!
Entertainment was providede by 'Stan's Magic Foot' described as 'An engaging mixture of vitriol and romance, Stan's Magic Foot stomp their feet to a wide variety of music, both traditional and contemporary. Champions of hat-wearing and the joy of singing' on the GBBF website
