Yesterday I attended the Ealing Beer Festival which took place in Walpole Park (http://www.ealing.gov.uk/info/200878/parks_in_ealing/658/walpole_park), and was organised by the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA). My friend John and I arrived at around 5:30 and left at approximately 10:50. Fortunately we where drinking thirds rather than pints which gave us plenty of opportunity to sample the many and varied beers on offer. Drinking thirds also had the advantage that we managed to navigate our way back to my friend’s home rather than spending the night slumbering in a ditch or under a bush!
We both sampled many brews which I had never heard of before. Being a dog lover and owner I felt honour bound to try Posh Pooch which I can report tasted rather good. While I did consider allowing my guide dog, Trigger to down a couple of pints of Posh Pooch I determined against this as he needed to get me back to my friend’s flat in one piece rather than getting me entangled in some deep and dank shrubbery!
The festival featured a wonderful sellection of dishes ranging from chicken curry to Polish hot dog sausages. I plumped for a large polish sausage encased in bread and it tasted so good that I succumbed to temptation and ordered a second helping. The meat was excellent and tasted far better than most of the sausages one can buy in the supermarket.
John and I spent a large part of the evening in a tent listening to live music. The female singer had a great voice and was also pretty nifty on her guitar.
All in all it was a great evening and I’d certainly recommend attending when the festival occurs next year.
