Thirst Ever Beer Festival

I spent the first part of August on holiday in Brittany with the family. One of the joys of France is trying out the vast array of wines from different regions, however, there does come a point when I just want to sit down with a good honest pint of beer and that is something France cannot offer.

On returning to Blighty I was pleased to discover thaCompBF3t one of our local hostelries, The Compasses, is hosting their Thirst Ever Beer Festival this coming weekend. Alongside a substantial list of local and regional real ales and ciders there are live bands, vintage tractor ploughing, children’s activities and arts and crafts. The pub will also be serving up their locally renowned Huffers. All in all it promises to be a substantial aperitif for the following weekend when I am looking forward to Greenbelt (about which no doubt there will be much blogging).
