…the need to blog about the Warwick Real Ale Festival.
Lads, moving to the Cooler was an excellent idea. It now really feels like a festival. Excellent.
I handed in my voting form yesterday, but for the record my favourite beers of the fest were:
1. Cains Victorian Ale (I just have a note on my programme which says "Hell Yes".)
2. Enville Saaz (Cask lager)
3. Gales Festival Mild (http://www.savegales.org.uk/)
But this festival I found that I was actually liking more of the ales I tried than I have been at other festivals recently. I don't know if this is because my tastes have matured or if Warwick just had a damn good selection this year.
Finally of course, I was playing with Brasssoc at the 'Last Night of the Fest'. All I can say is that I'm glad we were so thorougly apprecitated (and thanks to those who came up and told us that, it makes the job all the more worthwhile!).
