Yeah, a tasting of about 20 beers on the train on the way up should set us up nicely for the day. Iíll be at Euston reasonably early as I donít want to risk any delays on the way up from Kent.


Same here Ian.

I could in theory get the train that arrives Waterloo at 8.34 but will head in earlier just in case there are delays.

Will aim to get to Euston for 8am for breakfast in a cafe if you fancy meeting up around then ?

Perhaps we should ask the Euston Tap to open early for us?

7.43 gets to St Pancras at 8.21 so will be at Euston at 8.40 latest. A can of McEwans Export will be my first beer of the day sat outside the station like a proper alkie. Hopefully train will be ready to board from just after 9.

That reminds me Iíve got a can of that ilk from the US that Jredmond gave me as an extra last month. Iíll dig out of my stash in a bit - canít for the life of me remember what its called.

Hey guys. I put together a spreadsheet for the bus tasting. Feel free to add your beers (or ciders, meads, sakes, etc.). You can find the spreadsheet here:

bumping the link to the tasting spreadsheet forward as now a little buried mid thread
