Anyone going to the CAMRA Reading beer festival this coming weekend?

I'll be there all day Friday playing the alphabet game a half a pint per letter beer name or brewery name. It's a lot of fun and forces you to try lots of different ones rather than finding a nice one or area of the marque.
I hope to be there on Friday afternoon, enjoying the fruits of my labour (building the scaffolding and carrying in all the beer last weekend!)

Had an Iceberg by the Titanic Brewery. Went down nicely.
Groan....
Iceberg is difficult to keep right in pubs, always goes cloudy within a few days

the nicest i've drank is Lifeboat, and Steerage is pretty good too

One of these for lunch today (6.5% abv).

A rich, dark and fiery, yet smooth, barley wine with flavours of liquorice, ginger, caramel and roasted malts lasting through into a strongly bitter finish:

I tried that a few days ago, and I prefer it to Courage Directors.

Just had a lovely pub open up where I live in East Dulwich...

http://www.drafthouse.co.uk/

Truly excellent selection of beers.

Notable pints which I enjoyed last night were..

Camden Town Brewery pale ale. A good traditional beer.
Camden Town Brewery wheat beer. Similar to Schneider Weiss - bananary bubblegummy notes. Very good.

And the one I really enjoyed was a strong Belgian beer called Palm. Similar to a larger in terms of fizzyness and being served cold, but was dark and had a complex metallic sweetness. Lovely drop. Not sure quite how strong it was but it felt like it had the potential to be a headache maker.

Turns out they have a good website too...

Anyone else tried it?

Yep. Palm comes and goes from the pumps in my local 'Spoons. I'm always glad when it's there! It's not too strong: The headache isn't as bad as from some wink.

Went to a 'Meet the Brewer' evening at York Tap last night. New brewery 'The Hop Studio' at Elvington. Four very nice beers.

Off to Ireland/IOM for a few days but planning to go to Lincoln and Newark beer festivals next Fri/Sat respectively. Not been to Lincoln BF before though ironically it's my home town. Will be interesting to see what is on offer.

I was out in the US last week and enjoyed a few different IPAs (they seem to have loads to choose from).

First was Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA - had to chew through the first mouthful, but after that it was really good - full on flavour and pretty punchy.

Next was some Coast Dead Arm - much lighter taste and not as alcoholic. The kind you could stomp through a whole evening of.

Lastly, Magic Hat's Blind Faith - a middle ground between the two above, really. I'd compare it to something like Brewdog's Punk IPA.

If the Dogfish Head were available this side of the pond I'd definitely invest in some, but it looks like they pulled out of the UK a couple of years ago.

Dogfish head suff shows up sometimes in a couple of good off licenses I know.
Smuttynose IPA is another decent American beer.

Currently enjoying Thornbridge White Swan from Waitrose. Only 3.5% but you'd never know, quite unlike anything I've ever had at that strength. Lovely stuff.

Not keen on that one. Their Jaipur is the best bottled beer of all IMHO, but not exactly a session ale. White Swan definately is.
