The Northampton Chronicle & Echo has a short news item on last weekend's Delapre Abbey Beer Festival. Another huge success apparently, so congratulations to the Northampton CAMRA branch, and all others concerned with the running of this event. If you visit the Chronicle's website there is a short video of stills from the festival, and in amongst all the beery stuff, at around 1 minute 15 seconds, one of our very attractive 5 gallon barrels hoves into view (a smart addition to any pub). I was propping the cider bar up when these pictures were taken, but the photographer could not be persuaded to take one of me with the cider. This is perhaps not surprising as I was sporting a Leicester Tigers rugby shirt at the time!
I'm led to believe that the ciders and perrys ran out before the beer, which is of course how it should be. The video can be viewed here: http://www.northamptonchron.co.uk/video.aspx?VideoPath=NCE/beerfest.wmv&VideoID=19107&ArticleID=4144839
