This brings me to the end of my SpecTapular event for this year, I was pleased to see that there appeared to be a few more Saisons and Lambic style beer this year, and I either just missed them or there was not as many extreme hopped beers, there where also a couple of nice brown and black beers on the list.
From this event we went to the Lord Raglan for a bit of dinner and a couple of beers to finish off the day, as you do.
The Lord Raglan was very busy when we got there, full of people who had left the first session or where waiting for the second session of GABS.
The crowd thinned after a while and we where able to get a feed at the bar and a chance to have a chat with Phil,
I hope that was his name but my note taking wasn’t standing up to the late hour
The beers we had where:-
Feral Brewing: i wit; Witbeir
Nomad; Jet Lag; American IPA
Rocks Brewing; Conviction E.S.B.
Akasha Brewing; Hopsmith IPA
Rocks Brewing Bad Beans Brown; American Stout
LIGHT SNACK AND A BEER AT THE LORD RAGLAN
