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 Second Fish Beer Festival

I could only manage one part night at the second Fish Beer Festival but I did get to sample quite a few new beers in the short time I was there. The reason for the short visit was the impending rip to France (France reviews to follow soon), such a shame.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Steve and Mandy (and anyone else involved in the organisation) for doing such a great job.

As it was a Friday night, we had Trev and Pat with us and we also met up with Paul, visiting from down south, Mick and Bren were there anyway, as usual. As I had a few new beers on the night, I am going to do the review slightly different, you will have to click he photo to see tte review.

The new beers I had that night were,
