Sunday 14th September sees me celebrating yet another year on this planet.
A few of us will be popping down to south-east London to celebrate the day at a Best of British beer festival at Hoopers in East Dulwich.
The theme of the festival is based on winning beers from the 2008 GBBF & SIBA competitions.
We've been to Hoopers before and it's a lovely little boozer, nicely renovated, and there is also the promise of a Sunday roast.
Beers on offer are to include the following:
Rudgate Ruby Mild (4.4%)
Triple fff Alton’s Pride (3.8%)
Surrey Hills Ranmore Ale (3.8%)
Poachers Shy Talk (3.7%)
Skinner’s Betty Stogs (4.0%)
Cairngorm Trade Winds (4.3%)
Otley O2 (4.2%)
Surrey Hills Shere Drop (4.2%)
Vale Gravitas (4.8%)
Thornbridge Jaipur IPA (5.8%)
Otley O1 (4.0%)
Otley Ogarden (4.8%)
plus a few bottle conditioned beers:
Fullers 1845 (6.3%)
Wells & Young Special London Ale ( 6.4%)
Westerham Wm Wilberforce Ale (4.8%)
Doors open at noon (despite the opening times on the website) so see you there...
