    I'm not surprised, how much is the GBBF nowadays and was it a hot day? I stopped going back in the 1990s due to Olympia being like a greenhouse which warmed the beer up too much and the exorbitant cost. I also found the so called entertainment was a complete pain.

    No it wasn't too hot this year though I have been to some scorchers, the prices in general were around average London pub prices, about £4.40 -£4.60 a pint depending on what you were drinking. I tend to go to this only once every three years or so.

    I hope it's a case of a holiday relief manager not up to scratch,as I didn't notice any of the regular (and long standing) team anywhere inside.

    However if there has been a permanent change of management and this sort of malarky continues,any closure of the top bar will see a sudden decamp elsewhere,unless there is something decent on at the lower bar.

    I've been to the George early doors and the top bar didn't open until midday (I think).

    Not a bad week, with a couple of interesting new beers I'd not come across before.


    Little Critters - Little Hopper.
    Oakham - Citra.*
    Robinsons - Dizzy Blonde.
    Titanic - Plum Porter.*
    Saltaire - Waimea.
    Wilde Child - Eastern Promises.*
    Small World - Thunderbridge Stout.
    Castle Rock - Session IPA 2.0 v1.7.
    North Riding - Cascade.*
    Tigertops - EM Band.*
    Oakham - Black Hole.
    Three Brothers - DDH Pale.
    Kelham Island - Pint of View.

    Really enjoyed the Eastern Promises and the EM Band. I've found some Tigertops beers a little disappointing, of late, but the EM Band had that lovely lingering bitterness that I associate with the brewery's better beers.
