I am so glad I took today off. Last night we went to the Stockport Beer Festival at Edgley Park, and I feel ever so slightly rough today. I woke up at 9:30 and realised that at this time last year I’d been in work for an hour after walking home the night before.
Day off, excellent idea.
One thing I think we did wrong, but we’ll do the same next year I’m sure, is to start with the high percentage drinks first, then work our way down. We went straight for the 8% Old Tom, whereas most people were working their way up to the stronger beers. Consequently we were twatted after just a few drinks.
One tip I picked up from a guy in work known as ‘The Bear’; when selecting your glass go for a pint glass and ask for half a pint. They always over fill it. I reckon we each had an extra half pint easily, if not more. The woman in the photo was blind as a bat and Paulie had two thirds of one drink.
Top tip Bear.
I’m going for a lie down now, so I’ll let the pictures do the talking.
