Who's Going To The Dogs?

Well, holidays have been booked, sickies will be pulled and at least one holiday has been cancelled. Yes it’s time again for the country’s biggest pub fest at the Hare & Hounds in Holcombe Brook.

Festivities kick off on Thursday and over the next ten days there will be plenty of beer to be tried-both old favourites and new concoctions. All served as Vishnu intended: on sparkled handpump and cellar cooled.

There is a slight competitive edge this time around as I have an email from a ticker who has pledged to scoop more than me. Bring it on.

220 beers at a pub beer festival!? Well bugger me sideways! Shame I won't be able to make it, there are a few old favourites in there that I'd like to try again, and a few unknown ones which take my fancy.

Word of advice though, avoid numbers 139 to 144 ;-)
