What else could be so close to our hearts as beer? A lot of us researchers
drink it. Some of us to excess.
The Great British Beer Festival (GBBF) is run by CAMRA and is a celebration
of all that is great about the British brewing industry. And it is great.
There are around 2000 - 3000 different beers being brewed at
any one time in Britain. A lot more than you see in your average pub.
Not all of us are lucky enough to live within staggering distances from
pubs that stock a good range of ales, or even stock ales at all. So what
could be better than having literally hundreds of these fine brews
available under one roof?
Now, one of our esteemed researchers noticed that a few of us were
looking to go down to this event independantly, and suggested that whilst there
we meet up. And, what with one thing leads to another as it normally
does, there is possibly one of the biggest drinking sessions to be seen
this year now being organised for the Saturday.
So go along to A390386 and sign up! There's
even going to be a pub quiz for us to embarrass ourselves in!
