Just set up this new forum, I noticed that requests was being used a lot for asking for pub suggestions so thought that may deserve its own forum, also it seems like we should be trying to arrange the odd meet up now, which could be done here.

Whilst I try not to self-promote on here (to Conrad's annoyance at times when I keep PMing him asking if it's ok for me to post something...)

Our Welsh Ale and Literature festival takes place September 24th-26th. It's grown from 20 ales last year (green hopped) to 50+ this year, every single one Welsh, includes meet the brewers with most of the Welsh brewers present, the festival opened by Buster Grant, chair of the Association of Welsh Independent Brewers, The Hay Brewery opened (please cross everything you've got that it will be ready by then) by Peter Amor, Chair of SIBA and Wye Valley, Tutored beer tasting and beer and food matching with Melissa Cole, and numerous other bits and bobs. The website (updated as and when I confirm details) is www.thehaybrewery.co.uk/festival (http://www.thehaybrewery.co.uk/festival)
I was wondering if any of the West Midlands contingent wanted to try and meet up here. It is still a way off but I am hoping to be able to pop up for a day, I will probably not be drinking too much but would be good to meet some PuGers (I'm going to regret that new abbreviation quite quickly I fear).

Ah to be fair, it is looking like Dave will be busy as well, and on reflection Ed probably will be as well.

Another weekend? Also Arwkrite if you are reading this would you be up for a drink?

I'm certainly thinking that Ed will be busy:

Sounds like it will be good fun though!
