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.

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."
