    9) Probably Newcastle Under lyme

    11) Not sure
    12) The Bird In Hand, Stourbridge
    13) Yes, despite the beer choice spiralling down.
    14) Yes, life member. If I had to renew I would have not done so over National Bass Day.
    15) Yes, but not on front page.
    16) Yes
    17) Sam as I don't know who he/she is.
    18) I'd walk out or go for the cheapest.
    19) Ditto but Pedigree is the most likely
    20) Hammerton N7.
    Actually its Humprey Smith rather than Sam Smith
    Not sure that NBD is anything to do with Camra.

    You may well think that but if you've still got the last WB (and why would you given the panic buying of bog rolls?) then read the last paragraph and sentence of the editorial. I'd rather have a pint brewed with good ingredients and served carefully with a cask breather (remember them?) than a pint brewed with cheap and nasty dross and that uses the "CAMRA approved" quick dropping yeast from Marston.

    I remember Canterbury 1976. It was late June and held on a green in a marquee somewhere in Canterbury. It was one of the hottest days of the year during that horrible hot drought ridden summer. Three of us cycled there from London and I was dehydrated with a hangover but managed to get 4 pints of milk from a milkman in Rochester. I was a real lightweight at the festival due to the heat. I remember later Canterbury fests at the cricket ground where there was a tree and at a farm on the outskirts of Canterbury.

    1 first pub you drank in - Chequers, Lytchett Matravers aged 16.
    2 last pub you visited - Oak & Pastor, Tufnell Park, 10th March 2020 - feels like a lifetime ago.
    3 last beer you had in a pub - Dark Star Hophead
    4 first beer fest visited - A CAMRA festival in the Patti Pavilion on Swansea seafront in 1998/9 - I was a cider drinker at the time, knew nothing about real ale, and was the favourite (i.e. only) customer of the lady manning the cider bar, which meant I got very generous half pint measures of all manner of evil scrumpys!
    5 last beer fest visited - Croydon Beer Festival 2020 - it was dreadful, won't be bothering next year.
    6 total reviews on PG - 2,425
    7 do you have to have a drink in a pub to review - yes, but it doesn't have to be beer/alcoholic.
    8 have you done a Winfield 22 .nearest total in a day - No - probably around 15-16 at best
    9 fav PG crawl - Liverpool for the pubs, Leeds and Pompey for the crack
    10 least fav PG crawl - Loved them all, but maybe Brighton?
    11-first pub reviewed - Royal Standard, Croydon
    12 last pub reviewed - Denmark Arms, East Ham
    13 happy to drink in Wetherspoons - Yep
    14 camra member - Lapsed a couple of years ago
    15 should we have interior pictures of pubs - Interior, yes. Inferior, no.
    16 is there any purpose in posting multiple pictures of a pub - What Will said
    17 if you had to go for a drink with one of these which one Humphrey Smith,,Tim,or Boris - Tim, I suppose - Wouldn't last five minutes with Humph before falling foul of his swearing ban
    18 no cask so which one bud,fosters carling ,stella - These four are interchangeable to me - normally go for Guinness when faced with no cask/craft
    19 cask but which one doom,pride ,pedigree or bass - Pride, although *whisper it* I don't mind a well kept Pedigree or Bass.
    20 fav beer this year - Hasn't been a great year for beer so far. Probably Pressure Drop Tambourine Mountain at 'The Experiment' in Hackney. Best cask - Moor Stout in the Rusty Bucket, Eltham.
