Beer Festival Mobile App Updated

It’s July 2014 and I’ve been finding the time to update the popular mobile App I did for last two year’s festivals.  It contains the cask beers, bottled beers, and ciders – well it will once I process the excel files into my MySQL database. The lists do change up to the last minute, so I’ll try and keep them spot on – but the main bulk of the beers are ordered and will be on their way. The tasting notes and strengths...

I’m creating a small micro-site for my 2012 Peterborough Beer Festival experience – as I intend to up my game with pictures, video, and general notes/thoughts this year.  Check it out and keep an eye on it over the days of the festival for info/news/pictures.. if you do go along, you may see yourself in one of my efforts!  Full details of where and when and how much is also on the site.

Peterborough Beerfest 2012 – GREAT NEWS!

I’m very happy, as the organisers of the Peterborough CAMRA Beer festival appear to have listened to either the complaints, or the lower visitor numbers last year, and have reverted a few things to what I feel is the winning formula. Gone is the dreadful ‘new’ layout, where the music tent turned into a dead-end, meaning a lot of people never visited, and the festival lost the nice circular walk ‘around and...

London Beer Trip; Gram’s 40th Birthday Bash

Saturday was one of those social events that just can’t be missed; my old school chum Graham’s 40th B’day drinky down in the big smoke.  It was a great chance to catch up with some of the best lads around, and also an excuse to get a little bit tipsy. I think around 16 of us ended up in the Euston Flyer pub, our first stop on a pub packed journey.  Someone had done their homework, as we were able to walk between...

Peterborough Beer Festival Day 1 – Tuesday Scouting Mission

UPDATE:  It’s 2012, so check out my new micro-blog just for this year’s festival, it includes a mobile app to keep track of the ales! Well the traditional Tuesday ‘scouting mission’ at the Peterborough beer festival (beerfest) went well, with a few ales tried in the trusty half pint ‘tankard’ glass.  They even have straight half pint glasses if you prefer that; thought of everything the organisers...

Peterborough Beer Festival Nearly Here!

UPDATE:  It’s now 2012, so check out my new micro-blog just for this year’s festival, it includes a mobile app to keep track of the ales! … I may be getting a little excited, and my annual pilgrimage to the CAMRA Peterborough beerfest is nearly upon me.  Luckily it doesn’t overlap any big darts tournaments, else my two major hobbies would give me a conflict of interests! 🙂 If you’ve not been, but could...
