Hanover beer festival 2008

Just found my drunken notes from the Hanover Beer Festival the other weekend.

Naked Beacon (Breconshire brewery)
Fruitbat (B&T Brewery, Shefford, Beds) – raspberries!
Alton’s Pride (Triple F Bewery, Alton, Hants)

Festivale 30 (1648 Brewery, East Hoathley)
Winter Meltdown (Dark Star Brewery, Ansty) – needs a roaring fire and snow outside
Blonde (Saltaire Brewery, Shipley, W Yorks)

Bills gets bought

Not sure this is exactly a good thing, but the guy who runs the Ivy in London has invested in Bills, the cafe/greengrocers in Lewes and Brighton, with the promise of a big expansion. Will more mean worse, or will they be able to preserve their excellent Scrambled Eggs on Toast?
