If you know me or of me, you will know I like beer. Over the last few years I have been collecting photos of every new beer I have.
I now have over 1,700 individual beers photographed and have realised that many beers that I assumed I have photos of, I haven't.

This blog will be therefore be an account of my quest for new beers to photo and how I enjoyed them (or not).

The Fish Beer Festival Two

Well I only manged to get to the Fish twice during the four day beer festival and on the second visit, only got four new beers but that made it twelve in total.  I think the Festival was a big hit and I really enjoyed it.

Here are a couple of the beer to start with
Dark Tribe, Dixie's Marine Ales Twin Screw from England
5.1% red colour with a good head, fruity aroma and a strange fruity taste (rose hip according to the description), it did no go down well with our group.

Dark Tribe, Dixie's Marine Ales Sternwheeler from England
4.2% deep gold colour with a good head, hop aroma, bitter citrus taste, a lot better than the other one of their's above.
