For those of you who’ve not already seen its the marble arch 125 year anniversary this year and to celebrate they’ve got a whole host of events planned, one of which is a beer festival tuning from 1st – 4th August.
I was one of the lucky 25 who were asked to complete the nifty little post cards and ill tell you now it wasn’t easy, where on earth do you start picking 5 beers? Do they have to easily available? Do they need to cover the huge range of styles around? I wasn’t sure but decided to try and make them as current as possible and easy to get hold off without all being one style. My original list was close to 30 beers, this was soon whittled down by removing the special editions, no longer brewed and hard to acquire bottles, by now it was getting tougher and tougher to decide what to include, did I include a sour beer as I love the style and drink bucket loads of lambic and geuze? Did I include a beer I drink pretty much ever week or one that I’d had once and it blew me away.
