I managed to have a half today and mrsunclewilco joined me and had something else.
Unfortunately we were going for lunch (last of the big spenders) at one of the local ‘spoons in Cardiff – but did not have lunch as we were told there was a 45- 50 minute wait for food this was at 1.30pm… some chap at the bar had been waiting 50 mins already… cmon spoons sort out your main trade out 😉
Anyway onto the important matter of the Beer festival.
There had 5 ales on downstairs (apart from Abbot and something else but was excited), but I only managed to get near these clips
I had a half of Caledonian Old Seadog 5.2% – a great IPA that was quite hoppy but not as much as another Scots IPA I am fond of, the ABV did not make it a session beer, but I could happily quaff a few of these if time allowed!
mrsunclewilco had a half of Clarkes Classic Blonde ABV 3.9%, which is quite hoppy, she said was very nice (she reviews beer better than me)
anyway a good start and hopefully later in the week I may taste more, using their 3rd of a pint glasses, which of course a local brewer has adopted with their Posh Beer Tapas.
