Aww man, by the time I got your message Skipper, a lot of the beers were starting to run out. That one in particular was gone, as was the chocolate orange porter ‘Doomguy’ which I was really keen to try after it was awarded one of the beers of the festival.
I did get a chance to have the North Riding tiramisu porter which was nice, although I think the Horbury Ales one I’d had earlier in the year tasted more like tiramisu. There was a hazelnut stout by Little Critters that my girlfriend had which was delicious and very nutty. Thornbridge’s Cocoa Wonderland was really good too but I was tiring of the sweet stouts/porters by that point!
Beavertown’s Gamma Ray was a really good American pale ale and Magic Rock’s session pale Hat Trick was pleasant. By the end I was feeling heavy with sleep and couldn’t face much more booze! I’m so glad they allowed for thirds, halves and pints.
Thanks for the tips everyone, even if I wasn’t able to sample them all.
