It was a wet but enjoyable excursion for Brew Wales as we headed for Beer on the Wye IV the other day - the Hereford Beer Festival run by the local branch of CAMRA, the Campaign for Real Ale. Along with 3200 others a very wet day in more ways than one was spent sampling the real ales on offer as well as one cider - the excellent Black Pig Cider made just outside of Hereford by the caterer for the event.
One of the first beers to sell out was Purple Moose Cwrw Snowdonia but there were plenty of other Welsh Breweries there - Otley and Breconshire to name but two, all washed down with an excellent hog roast.
Could not resist putting this photo up of West Wales CAMRA stalwart Eric Evans doing his best NOT to do a Mary Poppins impression.
