‘Attended’ the 13th Oxford Beer Festival at the Town Hall on Thursday with the Thursday night lads. It seemed that most of Oxford was there, very busy. It was £10 to get in, this was £2 ‘entry fee’, £2 for the glass and £6 worth of beer vouchers. Most beers were around £1.40 – £1.60 a half. At the end of the session you could get the money back on your glass and also cash in any unused vouchers.
Amongst the real ales I sampled were :
Abbey Grange No.1
Prospect, from the Shotover Brewery in Horspath
All were actually very nice. Different from last year when, they were all a bit of a desired taste, shall we say. Result.
