Bug Logging Day

13/10/2019 Leave a comment

The Spoons Autumn Real Ale Festival is roughly at the same time as major software houses upgrade time. That’s why the #SaturdayWrap (live from The Queens Hotel – Newport) is upside down. So that’s why it’s Bug Logging Time. It was a double chips day and I got grassy in The Pen & Wig. Rained.

Stillage Fest

A sign of old age no doubt but it was just Caerphilly on the last day of my leave. It was also the first day of the Wetherspoon’s Autumn Real Ale Festival. The Malcolm Uphill has all 40 Ales and six on Stillage. Good times.

Missing Dingle Road

When your train doesn’t stop at Dingle Road it’s no biggy. However if it means you miss a Mini Chiefs Meet Up then it is. However Bacon & Coffee in Costa make up for it. Still no Spoons Beer Fest Ales but some quality brews anyway. The Crafty Cellar, Golden Lion and Bottle Shop all came up strong.

The Post Hat Beano

Post Gloucester Brewery’s Oktoberfest 2019. Monday Club in Spoons and two days away from the Autumn Beer Festival and £2.50 a Pint for Cask Ales in Tiny Rebel Newport. It drizzled.

Reading meets Germany with Onions

Bacon Roll and Coffee, Obvs. Single Spoons with Lager. A Rugby Tank and a Dock Bridge up. Introduced a CAMRA member to Untappd. Finished (sort of) The German Ales and there was a fruit sour from Reading. Next year or Weymouth. The joy of choice. The joy of Beanoing.

In An Oktoberfest Hat

Day 01 of The Gloucester Brewery’s Oktoberfest 2019. It rained a bit but we are are good in the rain. I was given a free Oktoberfest hat. The Ales were Fine and the excellent guy with the guitar from last year was back again. There was a burger and a German sausage. Tomorrow looks rather good as well.

Markdown Curry Thursday

The practice day for #MB14 the Gloucester Brewery Oktoberfest. Suffering from lack of Motorway lights, computer systems that don’t talk and smokers that don’t close doors. However, some rather different Fine Ales, MacSparky’s Markdown guide and some Topcashback cashback. All ready for some Fine German Oktoberfest Ales tomorrow. It’s a drizzly end to the day.
