Beer Festival

My brother and I popped along to Hulls anual beer festival yesterday afternoon. The above photo only shows about half the beers on offer, there was a bar with hand-pulled beer that ran the length of the other wall, and in another room there was also a bar selling 20 differant ciders and perry's plus 10 selected German and Belgian bottled beers, I think there was 70 'real ales' on offer .
It was held inside the city hall. We got there around 14:00 and stayed till 20:00 and managed to try 16 ales and 2 ciders, even had some good fortune on the tombola for the second year running, winning a bottle of whisky, a t-shirt, 4 bottled beers, Jack Daniels playing cards, 4 free half pints of beer at the event, a make-up bag for my sister and 2 free pints of beer at a pub who sponsored the event in Beverley (a town 20 mins drive from Hull) that was with £6 worth of tickets, so not a bad haul. And as an added bonus I didn't wake up with a hangover, which is always a plus.
Downside is that no friends turned up, but we managed to meet a few decent folk! and a couple of oddballs as well, including a guy who was just like 'Otto the school bus driver' in 'The Simpsons' which was bizzare!
I intended to take more photo's but it slipped my mind as I drank more and more beer...sorry!

Terribly good look if you have a sister so you can give her the 'make-up bag for my sister' prize!

You are one hell of a gambler!

You are forgiven for not taking more photos. Under the circumstances it is entirely understandable but I do like the one you did take.

And the tombolo haul - very impressive!
