    Can I just ask the perennial question, "will they take CAMRA vouchers during the Fest' " ?
    There are many diseases,
    that strike people's kneeses,
    Covid19! is one by name
    It comes from the East
    Packed in bladders of yeast
    So the Chinese must take half the blame.

    There is nothing in the voucher Ts & Cs to indicate that you can't and I'm sure that myself and others have taken advantage in the past. Can't see why they would object, since you can only use one voucher per visit (condition 6) and you won't be seeking to get around that, now would you?

    I have a vague memory that they don't, but can't see any reason - they are redeemable at the same value whatever the cost of the beer.
    Stumbled across a decent range at Lord Moon of Mall last night £2.70.
    St Austell Proper Black, Adnams American IPA, Wharfebank Treacle Toffee Stout, Bend Cascadian Dark; very good
    Mordue Red Rye Riwaka; good
    Kalamazoo Black Silk; poor (against Proper Black)
    Traditional Scottish Taking the Pith; awful
    People ordering gkipa; unbelievable
    Brewster's American Chopper, Rooster's Last Stand; missions

    They have used condition 5 before, "Cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer." Condition 10 could also be used but I haven't heard of it.

    I went In three different spoons today and had a Pint of different Ale in each and used a CAMRA voucher every time without a problem.

    Got off the mark last night in the Lord Moon - tried 3 of the U.S. interlopers, the Odells 90 Shilling being the front runner at the moment - very drinkable for its strength. Have a gig in the West End tonight so a trio of 'Spoons to hand, followed by footy at Borehamwood tomorrow where 'Spoons is the only place even worth contemplating a pint, followed by a mates gig in Greenwich in the evening - 'Spoons is on the way. Taking mother out for lunch on Sunday and she loves 'Spoons so the Cap in Hand in Hook for lunch followed by 2 'Spoons in Dartford in the evening. If I don't top the number of beers sampled table by Sunday night I will have seriously underachieved.

    I feel a challenge coming up. I aim aiming to have 20 different Festival Ales on the board by closing time Sunday!
