My Drinking List GWBCF 2014

My Great Welsh Beer and Cider Festival drinking list.

I had a plan but it soon went to pot but with the freebies, who cares?

First time in the Millennium Stadium and all the talk was about the increase in entrances fees.  However it was a sunny day and they had the roof open.



And as a CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) member, a free half pint.   IMG_8655
FUBAR – Tiny Rebel – 4.4% ABV.  A- Champion Beer of Wales 2014   IMG_8657
Pilsner – Zero Degrees – 4.8% ABV. B+ Clean but full of flavour (freebie)   IMG_8662
Wheat ale – Zero Degrees – 4.2% ABV. B++ like a certain Belgian Wheat beer but better (freebie)   IMG_8665
Sagres – 5.0% ABV.  B+ freebie lager from Portugal (freebie)   IMG_8664
La Tene – Celt Experience – 3.3% ABV. B++ hugely punches above its weight Hoppy Heaven. Brewed in Caerphilly.   IMG_8668
