Battersea Beer Festival

This is a bit late and the event is no longer on (there's always next year), but that's not really the point.  The fact that its the Battersea Beer Festival is sort of irrelevant, it's great because CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) are amazing.  They put on loads of events like this all around the country all through the year.  The format is more or less the same everywhere: hundreds of British ales and ciders with a smattering of good foreign beers, mainly from small producers that take time over their products.

The cost for this was £3 in and that's more or less standard.  You then put down a deposit on a pint glass, which you can opt to keep and a half pint is around £1.20-60.  I say half pint because its a shame to buy full pints here given the sheer choice available.  This choice can be a bit daunting, but this is where CAMRA are fantastic.  All the staff know what they're talking about and can help you pick things that are to your taste or just recommend their own favourites.  In short a great day to be had for all.

Oh and I'd like to give a special mention to the delicious Polish black pudding I had.
