Hi

Iíve noticed on the íSpoons site that in this Octoberís real ale festival theyíve got eight guest brewers rather than the usual 4 or so. Anyone got any ideas who they are, and what/ where theyíre brewing? For that matter, has anyone got a full ale list yet.

Incidentally I just tried to join Scoopgen to see if it was already on there, but it wouldnít let me - just returned "This page is blank". Any ideas?

Cheers

too early, usually only up 4 weeks in advance.

I did see the dates somewhere but I canít recall where. I think Iíll be in the States for most, if not all, of it.

Ta for the info, I was obviously far too eager and will wait (impatiently!) for a few weeks.



Dates of the fest are Weds 24th October to Sunday 11th November. I think.

That gives me one day before flying out & return on the last day. Unless Heathrow Spoons has upped its game considerably looks like Iíll miss everything.

Latest from the Wetherspoons website: the guest brewers are from Australia, Canada, Italy, Japan, Lithuania, Netherlands & the US, plus some imported Belgian beers - 10 "international" beers in total.



Iíve heard the Australian brewer is Feral, brewing an "Australian style IPA" at Marstons.



The US brewer is Avery, The Italian is Birra del Borgo & the Japanese Ishi, although I donít know where or what any of them are brewing. Havenít found out the Canadian, Lithuanian or Dutch brewer yet.



Cheers

I read in some JDW literature that the Dutch brewer will be ít IJ. I donít recall with whom theyíre brewing or what theyíre making.
