Last night, after work, I went to the Great British Beer Festival at Earls Court. It was a great deal easier to get into this year; last year I had to join a massive queue but this year there wasn’t one. Anyway, I had a good wander around, tried some very nice beers, including a very pleasant banana beer from somewhere or other, met and chatted with some nice people and left reasonably early because, to be honest, I was very tired and traipsing around made it all too apparent that I wasn’t going to last.
I’m glad I went although I think it would have been better if I hadn’t had a long day at work first. Maybe next year I’ll do the sensible thing and just take the day off.
