Drinking down in Devon

We went to Devon for a beer festival at the weekend. The Kingfisher in Colyton was having its first beer festival with 12 ales on. Not something I'd normally travel miles for, but The Kingfisher is the local of the lovely Lisa's older sister and it's nice to visit.

As the weather was hot the beers stillaged in the bar were a tad warm, despite their cooling jackets. Fortunately there were four more on hand pump drawn form the cellar and the Sharp's Atlantic IPA was on fine form. The bitterness and sweetness were nicely balanced and the hop flavour really came through. I had a few of these.

We had a great night in a great pub and hopefully we'll be back again soon.
