It’s good to watch the rain from the pub.

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.
