Chesham Beer Festival 2008

What are you doing this weekend? Why not go to the Chesham Beer Festival. Details are as follows:

When: 24th at 12 noon until the beer runs out
Where: Chesham Town Hall
Entrance Fee: There is no entrance fee as such but the beer is priced at about £3 per pint but is cheaper the more tokens you buy.
What: 18 ales and 5 ciders ranging from a dark mild through to old peculiar and a range of ciders including "old rosie" at 7.3%

See you there!

How was this? Wish I could have made it, but commitments later in the day meant I would have had to stay sober. A shame, as it's nice to have another local-ish festival on the books (I'm up in Wendover).

I thought that the festival was excellent fun and value for money. There were about 20 ales, 4 ciders, and one perry. I managed to get through all of the ales, and two of the ciders (I would have done more had they not run out!).
I intend to write a full article on the festival including the beers and tasting notes, but I seem to have misplaced my list for now.
I am reliably told that this was about the 12th by Chesham Round table. I also believe that the British Legion holds one in October every year. More info on that as it becomes available.
