The drinks list is now out for the Wanstead Beer Festival, which is taking place this weekend. One of the organisers, Paul Donovan, recommends the following:
“Among the highlights are, East London Breweries’ Walthamstow Green Hopped Pale Ale, created annually from hops grown by local enthusiasts. Also, Cowcatcher from ELA, a timely drink, coinciding with the long horn cattle being released into Wanstead Park, this year.
Then there is the award winning Harvey’s Best Bitter from the renowned Sussex brewer. And the excellent Walthamstow-based, Beerblefish’s Lee Valley lager – or if you fancy something a bit stronger Infinite Improbability from the same brewer.
Don’t miss out on Pretty Decent’s cryptically named ‘I could get better in Tesco’s for a quid’.
There’s a good supply of Solar Pale Ale from north London’s Redemption brewery. And pPlenty of beers from Brentwood, Elephant and Billericay breweries. Hammers fans will be keen to try out Pride of Prague – brewed to mark the famous Europa Conference final victory in June.
On the ciders, there are three from Devon based Farmer Jim, including the always popular Rhubarb Bob. Get in quickly for this one.”
Tickets for the festival are very nearly sold out – quite some achievement for an event like this in its first year. Cheers to all taking part. More details at: www.Wansteadbeerfestival.co.uk
