Rushed back from Runcorn on the 1.30pm train and got to the GBBF for 4.30pm. Quickly got a beer and met Stuey and Michelle. I could not believe I was the only one with a silly hat. Later we were joined by Stuart then Alex and his Dad John were along and found us by the pork scratchings. Sampled a number of nice beers such as George best, I can't believe it's not bitter, flower pot, shining light and stonely from a new Essex brewer. Also tucked into some of Bill's wasabee peas, so I didn't neglect my nutrition. Phil was along shortly and he indulged in some lager drinking. Luckily it was a virtual pint on his iphone.
