Slightly surprisingly I wasn't mobbed by fans after my autograph, it must have been due to English reserve.
As I started at about 7.30pm I paced myself and began with lower gravity beers. Having heard that the people at Surrey Hills prefer Ranmore to Shere Drop I gave it a go, but have to say Shere Drop is still the one for me.
As the evening progressed I tended towards darker beers, and beer of the festival for me was Dark Side of the Moose.

Mindful of the need to get the train home I poured myself home at a respectable hour, safe in the knowledge I had black pudding waiting for me in the morning.
