Really appreciate all the feedback! Look for us staggering around town this Time tomorrow. We’ll be the Canadian-sounding Yanks.

Have sorted the list by abv and number (is that a clue to where they’re served?) and will just go Freon there.

Going to Nottingham Beer Fest tomorrow (my first visit to this fest). That list is a bit daunting. Any Breweries in particular I should be trying ? Hops does it for me !.

You lucky boy. Buxton, Magic Rock, Mallinsons, Thornbridge, Pictish, Redemption (Trinity), Blue Monkey, Revolutions, Sadlers (Hopbomb), Hopshackle, Kinver all recommended. Roughly in that order. There’s 11 to get you started...

It was... excellent. Friday afternoon, the sun shone, the beers were superb, the ciders & perrys moreso. By far and away the best CAMRA fest I’ve been to.

Was amazing. I only made it through about 24 thirds in the course of 5 - 6 hours on Thursday, though I suppose if I’d been DRINKING more and not SOCIALISING so much, I might’ve made more progress. But 5 hours was just about right for me. Should’ve taken some proper photos though.

I had no beer that was not in fine form, condition- or temperature-wise. I had some that wasn’t the most exciting beer around, but that’s to be expected.

Redemption Trinity, 3.0% pale mild with Yankohops, was especially impressive, as was Ilkley Dinner Ale, 3.3% from a recipe from 1894.

It was nice to see Dave Unpro properly this trip, as well as to meet you. Was a fantastic trip all-around, despite rain on Thu & Sat. Some great walking, drinking, and eating. Only managed one pork pie though --but it was fuck-off good-- at the Blake Hotel in Sheff.

Biggest beery regrets: not finding more than the single Mallinson’s beer (at Shakespeare’s) or *any* Hawkshead at all.

The single most important objective of the trip for me was a success: having the Mrs be impressed with Sheffield & environs. Step 1 of secret plan to emigrate thither accomplished.
