SIBA, the society of small independent brewers, is holding the 2008 South East beer festival (and competition) at the end of the month (29-31st August) up at the 'Hop Farm' near Paddock Wood. All kinds of stuff is going on from 'Bat & Trap' to 'Hot air balloon flyout', whatever either of those entail. It will be a rattling good weekend and I do suggest you camp there to make the most of it.
Unfortunately for me, since Gray the Dray is heavily involved there, we're a man down here. And since Scooly decided to get married on the Saturday I won't get there until the Sunday. Hey ho, it'll be worth it.
In the meantime, here's hoping GADDS' bring back more gold medals than a GB cycling team!
