Oct-O-Bar 2019

It’s the end of October 2019 and it was time for Oct-O-Bar 2019 at The Otley Arms in Treforest. It rained a lot and there was flooding. However the Ales were Fine and they were all cask. CAMRA members turned out too. Good times and Mary showed up too.

Darker, Colder and GMT

The last day of British Summer Time. Colder, darker, wetter and 10.5 TOG. Oct-O-Bar at the Otley and more Onion planting #SaturdayWrap

On The Train, In The Rain

I hoping that I won’t be upside down this week. A workaround but no real answer. More updates of everything. What happens when your mobile network goes down and #RWC2019 and The Spoons Autumn Beer Fest #SaturdayWrap

Bug Logging Day

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.

Christmas Started Here

Oktoberfest 2019 is over for me. Gloucester again next year? 3 days off and the countdown to Christmas started. MacOS Catalina, I holding off. Overcast fixes iOS 13 bugs. Spoons Autumn Beer Fest and the rain doesn’t stop #SaturdayWrap

Could be upside down (again)

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.

The late Summer Bank Holiday Weekend

At The Otley Arms – Treforest

Lolffest7 – 03 August 2019

There is something about Lolffest or in this case Lolffest7. It’s a roughly quarterly beer festival at Bragdy Twt Lol, on the Treforest Industrial Estate in South Wales. Bragdy is Welsh for Brewery so if you are an English speaker, so of the spellings may look unusual.

A Costa Capp and Bacon Roll to start

Then of course my local Spoons, The excellent Malcolm Uphill in Caerphilly. Got to do a bit of prep of Lolffest doesn’t start until 12:00

And yes I’m early

It’s only about a 20 minute bus ride to The Treforest Industrial Estate. Get off at The Pottery. Go down the road between The Pottery and The QED Centre, cross the bridge and it’s 200m on the left hand side.

There is a sign too

Take a photo of the nut they said. I had no idea it was Aluminium.

Mostly to keep the flies out

Getting there early gets you the pick of the seats, or in this case casks. Of course I ended up in the corner.

The fridge magnets are bottle openers too. Two Quid to you Guvnor. Pretty Fly For A Magpie was the pick of the Fine Ales. The oversize glass is a winner too.

Hoppy, fruity and refreshing.

It did however rain on the way home. The Great British Summer of course.
