probably holding a small beer festival in 2012 featuring home brews, in small quantities. Fancy it? Email me, twitter, text or leave a comment below…
Where: A garden, Easter Compton, South Gloucestershire
When: Mid to Late April 2012 (tentative, brews allowing)
Update 20th Jan: The first Festival Beer is in the fermenting bin! Andy started his wheat beer lastnight, and it’s looking lively!

Matt Rolf – Bringing Cheese Cake!
Lucy Watkins – Bringing Cupcakes!
Matt Lowe – Independent Adjudicator
Judging: Each beer is judged by all the other entrants and
given a zero, silver, gold or platinum mark scored somehow. Entrants are not allowed to judge their own beer.
The Prize: The bumps! (and as much remaining homebrew as you can reasonably drink for the rest of the day). Possibly some Sherbet Fountains. Who knows!
Possible Rules of Entry:
– Minimum 10 bottles (or one demijohn for old school brewer types).
– Beers must be named, and labeled. Graphical sticky labels will get extra bumps.
– Any bringers of bought ales will be beaten, killed and eaten.
– 2.5% ABV or above (horribly weak tasting beers might need photographic hydrometer reading proof!)
Brewing Questions / Resources:
Open to suggestions here. Shops wise beer ‘kits’ can be bought from eBay or Google Shopping. In Bristol ‘Brewers Droop‘ on Gloucester road is good – especially for advice. If you’re planning to use a kit, its worth getting a better yeast at least.
