Overheard in the GBBF Pisser.

All this talk of CAMRA and the Great British Beer Festival and the foreign beer tables and cask and keg and Brewdog and so on...

To sum it up: Our British beery friends like to argue about lots of stuff but in the end will all come together and have a swell time.

Just yesterday I was rifling through an old notebook and found this tidbit from my one glorious day at GBBF two years ago. I quote its entirety:

Overheard in the pisser:

"Have you tried any of the Americans? Have you tried Stone IPA? All right, for your last beer of the day, go for a hop monster. You can't taste anything afterward, but it's a bloody great beer."
