Travelling by tram and bus, making full use of our free bus passes, on Wednesday 13th October,ten of the Real Ale Group ventured down to the Trent Cricket Ground to attend CAMRA’s (Campaign for Real Ale) Robin Hood Real Ale and Cider Festival.
There were almost 800 different beers on offer, one of them 28% alcohol content, we had a third of a pint and shared it between most of us, just a sip to say that we had tried it – not particularly pleasant.
However, a very pleasant afternoon/early evening was had by all sampling, in thirds of a pint, the many varied beers on offer. The idea was to try many different beers rather than just drinking lots of it.
Making our way home, some of us stopped off at Wetherspoon’s Pilgrim’s Oak in Hucknall for a very tasty curry. Once again, a very enjoyable day, with pleasant company, thanks to all.
